Our governor will speak at the Democratic National Convention tonight.
But yesterday morning he was busy explaining remarks he made about the state of the country.
Sunday, Martin O'Malley told CBS' "Face the Nation" that people are not better off today than they were four years ago.
Now, listen to what he told CNN’s Soledad O'Brien on Monday.
"Here's the reality of our situation as a country,” said O’Malley. “We are clearly better offer as a country because we're creating jobs rather than losing them."
"We have not recovered all that we lost in the bush recession. That's why we need to continue to move forward. Is there anybody on this panel that thinks we've recovered all we lost in the bush recession? I don't think anybody can say that. But, clearly, we're moving forward and creating jobs,” he said.
The governor will speak at 10 tonight from Charlotte.
He will be introducing tonight's keynote speaker, San Antonio mayor, Julian Castro.
