Former Baltimore Mayor and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley Will Run For President in 2016


Martin O'Malley
Former Baltimore Mayor, and Maryland Gov.Martin O’Malley confirmed on Saturday May 30th, that he is in  the 2016 White House race. O'Malley's entrance into the race  presents a long-shot challenge to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination by his promise to reform Wall Street and other corridors of power so that every American can share in the country’s prosperity.

Declaring his plan to “Rebuild the American Dream,” O’Malley told a crowd of several hundred in Baltimore, where he was once the mayor,
“I’m running for you. … My decision has been made. … I declare that I am a candidate for president of the United States.”

In a speech intended to appeal to progressives and other members of the Democratic left, O’Malley vowed to go after Wall Street “cheats” and others who have turned the economy “upside down” to their favor.

Outside of Maryland he remains largely unknown in a field dominated by Clinton. But then a whole lot of folks didn't know who Barack Obama was until 2008.

I wouldn't blow O'Malley off. He has managed to win two high level (Mayor and Govenor) positions in his march to the presidential challenge. If I were Hillary, I'd play him close. If not she could get slammed dunked out of a nomination.
