Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will make a prime-time address at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina tonight.

O'Malley will take the stage around 10 p.m., just ahead of keynote speaker and San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro.

The Maryland governor is the head of the Democratic Governors Association, and is expected to trumpet the accomplishments of his colleagues this week. He is also likely to mention he economy; speaking on WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show Monday, O'Malley countered Republican claims that President Obama is not up to the task of improving the economy.

"I do think that the main issue in this race is which of these two candidates has a vision and a plan to move our country forward and it's clearly President Obama," O'Malley said.

Maryland  Rep. Steny Hoyer and former Virginia governor and current U.S. Senate candidate Tim Kaine will speak today as well.
