Martin O'Malley Trails Rivals in Fundraising with $2 Million Haul | TIME - TIME
"...O'Malley's total haul reveals just how far he'll have to go to win the nomination. A recent poll shows him with just 1% support in national polls, even as Sanders gains on Clinton.O'Malley's competitors for the Democratic nomination have far outpaced him in fundraising. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has raised $45 million, or well over $500,000 per day since launching her campaign in mid-April, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has brought in $15 million, or around $250,000 per day. Sanders raised $1.5 million in a single day of fundraising after announcing his campaign...." see full article

O'Malley tried to offer mayor crime-fighting tips before leaving office - Baltimore Sun
"...O'Malley supporters have noted that his aggressive, zero-tolerance police strategy had been rehashed through three elections in which O'Malley received overwhelming support in African-American communities often affected by the policy.O'Malley and Rawlings-Blake tussled over the same issue in 2013, when the governor questioned a drop in arrests in Baltimore and suggested the decline led to a rise in crime...." see full article

Is Martin O'Malley the leader you want? -
"...Here are some of the things he was able to accomplish during his tenure as the governor of Maryland: He welcomed the new governor with a budget shortfall of $750 million, he successfully raised 40 different taxes, fees, and tolls that increased the annual tax burden of Marylanders by $3.1 billion, and over a three-year period, he looted $868 million in transportation funds that he never repaid. He will tell you he balanced the budget though.Maryland ranked second in the country for foreclosures in 2014.. After spending 125 million on an inoperable website for health care, he managed to drive small and large businesses alike out of the state while enacting gun laws that border on violating the Second Amendment...." see full article

It's not just Hillary. Sen. Bernie Sanders is outdrawing Martin O'Malley. - Washington Post (blog)

"...Though both Sanders and O'Malley lag far behind Clinton in polls, Sanders's support has jumped while O'Malley's has been stagnant for months. In a recent Iowa poll, for example, Clinton had the support of 61 percent, Sanders 15 percent and O'Malley 3 percent. National polls have been similar.In Davenport, Democratic activist Sara Riley said that she likes both O'Malley and Sanders -- but doesn't see a scenario in which Sanders actually wins the nomination. I would say O'Malley is the alternative to Hillary, said Riley, a lawyer from Cedar Rapids who had heard O'Malley talk on two previous occasions. I love Sanders on the issues, but with the exception of some hard-core people who'll support him no matter what, I think most people want someone who'd be a stronger general election candidate. ..." see full article

O'Malley's Embarrassing Announcement - Daily Beast

"...But as O'Malley delivered his remarks, a small group of others made their voices heard, too and called to mind the criticisms of O'Malley's record on crime and police brutality which came under scrutiny during the Baltimore riots earlier this month. A woman charged through the crowd holding a sign reading Stop killer cops and say her name. She shouted, Black lives matter! Someone else yelled, We don't need zero tolerance policies, O'Malley! and What about police brutality? The protesters blew whistles, which drowned out O'Malley. Police and press surrounded them, and O'Malley just carried on as if it was not happening. As I was exiting the park, I came across Andrew Fair, 30, who held a sign almost as large as his body, which read NOMALLEY. He told me about six or seven people had stopped him to discuss the sign. I think O'Malley's not concerned with people's needs. He just wants to advance his career, he said...." see full article

First Draft | Martin O'Malley's Star-Spangled, Snafu-Speckled Debut - New York Times

"...But the morning's preliminaries were pocked with curiosities and hiccups.The sun was so oppressive that many of his supporters arrived late, avoiding the heat. Baltimore is more than 60 percent black, but the crowd was predominantly white. And Mr. O'Malley attracted a large pack of journalists, but a number of computers stalled in the heat.Onstage, the first speaker credited Mr. O'Malley, a Democrat, with leading Maryland through the Great Depression an errant reference to the 2008 recession, but one that made it sound as if he were taking on Franklin D. Roosevelt, not Hillary Rodham Clinton.While Hillary Rodham Clinton's announcement video checked various demographic boxes of what the modern Democratic party looks like, Mr. O'Malley seemed to one-up her during his announcement: One young man who spoke identified himself as an undocumented immigrant brought into the United States as a child who is also gay...." see full article

Martin O'Malley, mild-mannered man: Why the media are yawning - Fox News

"...But on paper, the Washington Nationals should have won last year's World Series. And campaigns, like sporting contests, have to be fought in the real world.And in that world, O'Malley is basically an asterisk or at least being treated that way by the media. His official announcement on Saturday didn't make much of a pop.The man was a two-term governor of Maryland and spent seven years as Baltimore mayor, but hardly anyone knows who he is. I've interviewed him and gone to his events and he's very fluent in policy, but the few outside politics who are familiar with him know him mainly as the model for a character in The Wire. ..." see full article

Martin O'Malley Announces Candidacy for President: Can He Win the Latino Vote? - Latin Post
"...But, O'Malley faces stiff competition. Clinton continues to dominate against GOP contenders, according to a Public Policy Polling survey from May 21. O'Malley remains fairly obscure to most voters with only a 9 percent favorability rating versus a 72 percent "not sure."Even Sen. Sanders, who is running farther to the left than O'Malley and Clinton, enjoys higher numbers and greater celebrity. However, he failed to directly address immigrant issues in his announcement speech.The PPP survey found O'Malley only has a 12 percent favorability rating among Latinos, compared to Clinton's 51 percent. Among Democrats, O'Malley comes third at 4 percent, behind Sen. Sanders (24 percent) and Clinton (57 percent)...." see full article

Martin O'Malley Turns The Democratic Primary Ugly By Attacking Bernie Sanders - PoliticusUSA
"...Bernie Sanders did more yesterday at the federal level than O'Malley has done in his entire career.O'Malley is trying to play the executive experience card, but it isn't going to work. Martin O'Mally is trying to be both the young agent of change and the seasoned executive. His strategy is similar to the one being used by Scott Walker in the Republican primary. In fact, O'Malley's style of campaigning would be a better fit for the Republican primary. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are running civil and issue-focused campaigns. O'Malley is trying to change the tone of the primary with attacks on both Clinton and Sanders, but these attacks aren't what the vast majority of Democrats are interested in. Martin O'Malley can't separate himself on the issues because Sanders has already staked out the more liberal positions, so he has to throw bombs to get attention...." see full article

Martin O'Malley Looks To Future But Can't Escape the Past - TIME
"...O'Malley recycled many familiar tropes from his campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire, as well as cable television green rooms. I've got news for the bullies of Wall Street, O'Malley said, digging at the Clintons, the Bushes and the big banks all in one familiar swing. The presidency is not a crown to be passed back and forth by you between two royal families. On paper, O'Malley is a candidate ready-made for Democratic caucus-goers. But in a year dominated by Hillary Clinton, he is struggling to establish clean policy distinctions with her on make-or-break issues. He'll have to find something where he and Clinton have a different position, said Craig Varoga, a top consultant on O'Malley's 2010 reelection campaign for governor. In order to win he'd have to be a perfect candidate, and then get very lucky. ..." see full article

Martin O'Malley may be a Democratic candidate to keep an eye on - Kicker (registration) (blog)
"...So what's all the hubbub about this Martin O'Malley guy? Well, he's going to give Hillary a run for her money (which is saying a lot considering how much it costs to run for president now a days). O'Malley, a Democrat and the former governor of Maryland, announced in Baltimore on Saturday that he would throwing in his hat for the presidency.O'Malley is a progressive candidate. While he was governor he legalized same-sex marriage, implemented stricter gun laws, and promoted Obamacare. As the former mayor of Baltimore, O'Malley has received some criticism since Freddie Gray's death. O'Malley promoted a zero-tolerance policing strategy when he was mayor, which he says has saved the lives of thousands of African Americans in the city...." see full article

Martin O'Malley Needs a Reboot Before He Ruins What Could Be A Great ... - PoliticusUSA
"...Martin O'Malley says he's the young face, but he's using both sexism and ageism as a crutch to help him get attention. That isn't young. And what he and his people seem to fail to understand is that contrary to what the media has been feeding politicians forever, people do actually care about the issues. This is why Senators like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have such a loyal following. Liberals want to hear about the issues, and they deserve a primary focused on issues, not cheap shots. Not only is he shooting his promising future in the foot if he stays on this course, but O'Malley needs a reboot before he ruins what is set to be one of the best Democratic primaries in a long time...." see full article

I'll say one thing for Martin O'Malley - Power Line (blog)
"...Unfortunately, this accomplishment won't cut much ice in Democratic primaries because the high volume of arrests during O'Malley's tenure alienated poor African-American communities. When that alienation boiled over following the death of Freddie Gray, O'Malley's slim presidential prospects probably went up in smoke.O'Malley's successor, Sheila Dixon, abandoned O'Malley's zero tolerance arrest policy. Her successor, Rawlings-Blake has gone further. When rioting loomed, she gave those who wish to destroy, space to do that ( her own words). When police officers were attacked, they were ordered not to fight back. A dozen officers sustained injuries while rioters destroyed buildings and looted stores...." see full article

Martin O'Malley Delivers Powerful Campaign Kickoff Speech - Bloomberg
"...Smartly written speech powerfully delivered by one of the best orators in American politics. Far from running from his Baltimore record, he embraced it, along with what he did as Maryland's governor. Contrasted himself with Hillary Clinton as more left, more populist, and more of a leader. Saturday morning might not be the best time to make an introduction to America, but O'Malley demonstrated why Bill Clinton tagged him long ago as one of the Democratic Party's biggest stars. If the nomination fight didn't have an overwhelming frontrunner, O'Malley's performance would have been a game changer; instead, it is ringing calling card...." see full article

Why it matters: Martin O'Malley is running - USA TODAY

"...That means O'Malley is worth watching. He'll get a platform at candidate debates and forums to make his case. Democrats sometimes embrace insurgents remember George McGovern and Gary Hart? and the news media love a fight.What's more, he's got a substantive record as the two-term governor of Maryland that progressives love. He signed into law measures that legalized same-sex marriage, repealed the death penalty and allowed some children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition. That said, turmoil in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray while he was in police custody has raised questions about the tough-on-crime initiatives O'Malley instituted as mayor...." see full article
