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.

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.

An email alerting O’Malley supporters to Thursday night’s call promised “an important update on his imminent 2016 plans.” People familiar with the planning said several locations within Baltimore have been under consideration for the May 30 event.

    Will the Clinton machine allow O’Malley to run? Hey, Marty, better hire an extra bodyguard or three!

  • David in MA

    Is O’Malley Constitutionally eligible to be president? His Mother is the daughter of parents who were/are German?

    His ancestry MUST be investigated!

  • Bob Stewart

    I’m sure O’Malley’s administration is responsible for much of what transpired in Baltimore.

    • David in MA

      He was at one time Mayor of Baltimore and signed for same sex marriages and illegal immigrant college entry.
      He has close contact with mulkuski’s office, and his wife or mother works for mulkuski…… what close a knit family of politicians America has, almost like an inbred Kentucky family, ( meet my wife? sure, hey sis come here)

        U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) issued a statement on the deadly Amtrak train derailment. In that statement, she claimed “It’s outrageous that less than 24 hours after this terrible crash, the House voted to cut Amtrak funding by almost 20 percent…” However, Babs did not explain how cutting the Amtrak budget AFTER the train’s engineer caused the derailment by going over 100mph in a 50mph zone.The proposed budget cuts are “necessary in order to keep the budget under the spending caps agreed to four years ago by President Obama and lawmakers.”
