Former President Bill Clinton spoke in Baltimore as part of a nationwide effort to rally Democrats for the upcoming elections.

Former President Bill Clinton is rallying for Democrats across the country, including Gov. Martin O'Malley in his campaign against former Gov. Robert Ehrlich.

Clinton spoke about the differences he sees between the two candidates and highlighted O'Malley's commitment to education.

"If you want Maryland to be number one in education, if you want Maryland to be number two in entrepreneurship, if you want Maryland to be number three and maybe rise to number one in being ready for the new economy, you got to keep college affordable which means you better keep Martin O'Malley you better keep Anthony Brown and you better keep every member of your congressional delegation," Clinton says.

The former president also spoke about health care reform, the environment and education--ending his speech by urging residents to vote.
