Play associated audio

In Maryland, high-profile names will be making appearances this week as the gubernatorial election approaches.

The Republican nominee, former Gov. Bob Ehrlich, received the endorsement of Maryland's Fraternal Order of Police today. Then this weekend, former New York city mayor and Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani will appear with Ehrlich at a rally in Montgomery County.

Giuliani's successor as mayor, Michael Bloomberg, earlier this month gave his endorsement to Democratic incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley. On Thursday, former President Bill Clinton will headline a rally in Baltimore for O'Malley. That comes two weeks after current president Barack Obama also held a rally with O'Malley at Bowie State University.
