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.
