O'Malley to Announce on May 30

From the Washington Post:

"DURHAM, N.H. -- Former Maryland governor Martin O'Malley, who has been ramping up for a potential White House bid, plans to make an announcement about his political future on May 30 in Baltimore, aides said Wednesday.

"O'Malley, who is widely expected to run for the Democratic nomination, will tell donors and other supporters about the announcement in a conference call scheduled for Thursday night, according to aides who requested anonymity in order to speak more freely."

1. This is excellent news.

 

While I am a Sanders supporter, I want to see a very vibrant primary challenge. I do not want to see Clinton anointed. So I welcome O'Malley to the race.

3. Thanks. Why we support O'Malley...

Martin O'Malley:

1. Ended death penalty in Maryland
2. Prevented fracking in Maryland and put regulations in the way to prevent next GOP Gov Hogan from easily allowing fracking.
3. Provided health insurance for 380,000
4. Reduced infant mortality to an all time low.
5. Provided meals to thousands of hungry children and moved toward a goal for eradicating childhood hunger.
6. Enacted a $10.10 living wage and a $11. minimum wage for State workers.
7. Supporter the Dream Act
8. Cut income taxes for 86% of Marylanders (raised taxes on the rich).
9. Reformed Marylandís tax code to make it more progressive.
10. Enacted some of the nationís most comprehensive reforms to protect homeowners from foreclosure.

There is a lot more, but I'll only add that Mother Jones magazine called him the best candidate on environmental issues.

4. There is a lot of good there to support.

 

Most of my family lives in Maryland, so I am somewhat aware of him and his legacy as Governor.

I could vote for him over Clinton any day.
