Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), “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,” the Washington Post reports.
“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… The aides expect O’Malley to say he is inclined to run but to remain somewhat circumspect about his intentions. Were he to tell them outright that he plans to enter the race, he could trigger a 15-day window that would require him to file candidacy papers before May 30.”
I wonder how Martin O’Malley will counter his critics on the policing policies he enacted during his tenure as Baltimore mayor?
Separately, former New York Gov. George Pataki (R) said he will announce his decision about a presidential bid on May 28.
