At last week’s rally in Bowie, Mr. Obama told the crowd, “What the other side is counting on is that this time around, you’re going to stay home. They figure Obama’s not on the ballot, you’re not going to come out and vote. Well, Maryland, you have got to prove them wrong.”
Whether that message is getting through to enough black Democratic voters is an open question.
Joyce Walker, 55, of Bowie said she feels her fellow Democrats “might take a big hit” next month because many core voters are not fully engaged in races not involving Mr. Obama.
“Most people, they’re not enthusiastic about the governor’s election. They’re mostly enthusiastic about the president,” she said.
