Maryland Gov. O’Malley To Announce 2016 Plans On May 30th

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) will announce whether he plans to run for President of the United States on May 30.

Supporters received an email on Thursday announcing an evening call on O’Malley’s “imminent 2016 plans,” according to The Washington Post. O’Malley will make the announcement from Baltimore, Maryland, the The New York Times said.

For months, O’Malley has been hinting at plans to run for president, despite numerous polls showing him trailing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

If O’Malley does decide to run, he’ll be the latest longshot candidate to jump into a primary where Clinton has taken the position as the frontrunner. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) is running for president and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (D) and former Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) are also considering runs.

In March, O’Malley decided not to run for Sen. Barbara Mikulski’s (D-MD) Senate seat, further supporting hints that he’s planning on making a run for the White House.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
