Maryland Gov. O’Malley Talks Possible 2016 Presidential Run, Progressive Values In Chicago (VIDEO)

Outgoing Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is “seriously considering” a 2016 bid for the White House, the Democrat told an audience at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics on Thursday night.

“I’m very seriously considering running in 2016,” O’Malley said at the packed discussion focused on “progressive politics in a post-Obama world.”

“Right now, my primary responsibility is to move my family back to Baltimore, which I will do in another week,” added O’Malley, who leaves office January 21. “So I am going to be taking some time over the next couple of months to get my family resituated and make us well and get us back to the city where we all feel comfortable, but I’m very seriously looking at it, is what I would say.”
