Former Maryland Governor Enters Race for The Democratic Presidential Nomination


Former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley has announced his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Mr O'Malley, who is also a former mayor of Baltimore, joins Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the primary race ahead of the 2016 US election.

“I'm running for you,” Mr O'Malley told a crowd of around 1,000 people in Baltimore on Saturday.

He also pointed to his work as governor on issues such as gay marriage, immigration and income inequality.

“My decision is made. Now you will all have a vital choice to make next year, for the good of your families, and for the good of the country you love and carry in your hearts,” he added.

The Democratic National Committee said it welcomed a candidate who had shown “solid commitment” to social justice.
