O'Malley has secured a campaign headquarters in Baltimore, and plans to focus heavily on the city in his campaign.

Here's a glimpse at what other publications are writing about former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley:

  • CNN reports that O'Malley will emphasize "youthfulness" in his campaign:
    "We do think there is a real generational argument to make and that he can seize upon it," said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

  • The Weekly Standard makes note that O'Malley was praised by former President Bill Clinton, who called him "a teriffic governor" just last year:
    Clinton went on to note that "Maryland at least twice during [O'Malley's] two-term tenure has been voted the best run state in the country."

  • Politicio takes a look at O'Malley's announcement plans and details a 13-minute call with supporters:
    On the call were O’Malley’s political director Karine Jean-Pierre, an alum of Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, and senior advisor Bill Hyers, who was New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s 2013 campaign manager. O’Malley didn’t mention Clinton by name, only saying, as he has in the past, that “history is full of times where the inevitable front-runner is inevitable until they’re no longer inevitable.”

  • The New Hampsire Union Leader says O'Malley has hired two key staffers in the state:
    John Bivona will be named state director while Matt Sheaff will be deputy state director, according to a source with knowledge of the move.
