Maryland's former governor has said he will not seek the Senate seat Barbara Mikulski will vacate in 2016. But the buzz continues to surround the anticipation of Martin O'Malley announcing a campaign for president.
After this past weekend, when O'Malley visited Iowa, that buzz only grew.
Here's a glimpse at what other publications are writing about former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley:
- Fredric U. Dicker of the New York Post, citing a prominent member of the party, says Democrats favor O'Malley if Hillary Clinton doesn't run:
O’Malley, an all-but-announced candidate who was on a campaign swing in Iowa over the weekend, “is the one who I think is going to emerge as the front-runner if Hillary is forced out,’’ said the Democrat, a strong Clinton backer whose views carry considerable weight with party members.
- A report on CBSNews.com says O'Malley's campaign looks "more likely" and that he "appeared upbeat about challenging Clinton."
- Vox takes a look at Elizabeth Warren's campaign through the lens of the Boston Globe, and says O'Malley's is running his campaign the way that voters would like to see Warren proceed.
- A DailyIowanEPI.com headline compares O'Malley to JFK, and touts the former Baltimore mayor's accomplishments while also noting that he hasn't registered well in polls.
- Business Insider offered a glimpse at the "O'Malley's March" play list from a Thursday fundraising event in D.C., and a nugget from O'Malley as he addressed those in attendance:
"I'd really like to stay in touch with you over these next couple months. Because I have a big decision to make and I need to make that decision by May," he told his audience.
- Bloomberg's Ben Brody says O'Malley is setting himself up to be the "un-Hillary" in the 2016 campaign.
