O'Malley shows up in Boulder, slams GOP candidates. [View all]

Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley turned up in Boulder on Wednesday, and took the GOP candidates to task for lack of sound economic plans.

In an interview with CNBC, O'Malley said there's not a single sound economic plan among the GOP presidential hopefuls.

As the GOP candidates prepared to take the stage at the third Republican debate later Wednesday, the former Maryland governor came to the University of Colorado to rally with activists supporting stronger gun regulations.

While speaking with CNBC on campus, O'Malley said he would be listening intently Wednesday night for a glimmer of economic plans that do not rely on trickle-down economics.

"I haven't heard any so far," O'Malley said when asked if he thought any Republican candidates had viable plans for the economy. "I've heard a lot of doubling down on trickle-down economics, and I think what the people of our country are looking for are the ideas that get wages to go up and not down."

Still, the Democratic hopeful who is consistently polling in third place behind Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders said he thinks that conservative politicians could be positioned to offer policies that he thinks are adequate.

"In the Republican Party, there's actually a lot of room for a candidate to emerge and instead of spewing hate and bashing immigrants and saying cruddy things about women I think if a couple of these candidates actually offered the ideas that would make incomes go up and wages go up as a country ... I think they'd see a lot of Republicans in their own party rallying to them."
