O'Malley picks Federal Hill to announce next move

Martin O'Malley is expected to announce his presidential campaign in Federal Hill Park -- using the city where he got his start in politics as his backdrop, his campaign said Tuesday.

The former two-term governor and mayor of Baltimore provided new details about his announcement on Twitter and Snapchat. The event, in which O'Malley is widely expected to announce he will seek the Democratic nomination for president, is scheduled for 10 a.m. on May 30.

O'Malley, 52, would become the third Democrat to enter the contest, behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. O'Malley has been aggressively traveling in early primary states since his second term ended in January, but he has not made significant headway in early polling.

O'Malley has used the park for political events before, including a rally the night before his 2006 gubernatorial election.
