Iowa can make people famous "overnight," says O'Malley.

Former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley doesn't seem worried about his single-digit position in the polls.

O'Malley is running for the Democratic nomination for president, and is currently running far behind Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"A person can become very, very famous in our country overnight, once the people of Iowa make their determination," O'Malley told reporters outside the Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor Wednesday night, where he was to attend a private fundraiser. "In fact, President Obama defeated the inevitable front-runner" eight years ago in that very first contest, he noted.

O'Malley says he supports making college more affordable, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and making it easier, not harder, for people to join labor unions.

"Most of us 70% of us are making the same or less than we were ten or 12 years ago," says O'Malley. "And that's not the American dream. That's not how our economy and our country's supposed to work."

O'Malley says he came to Michigan to meet with leaders of the United Auto Workers.

His next stop is Iowa.

1. This is true.

 

Of course, I'm from Iowa, so I'm not exactly an unbiased source!
