Martin O’Malley Suspends Presidential Bid After Poor Showing in Iowa Caucus


Democrat O’Malley Suspends his campaign … Did he ever have one to begin with?

Following a poor showing in last night’s Iowa Caucuses, Democrat Martin O’Malley suspended his campaign and dropped out of the race. One might ask whether he ever had a campaign as in the Iowa Caucus he managed to under-perform his 3% polling. One has to wonder how a former mayor of Baltimore, MD, with all that has recently gone on there, could have ever been considered a viable candidate. Obviously, he wasn’t.

He’s out!


Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley announced the suspension of his presidential campaign Monday night, following a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses that effectively ended his long-simmering White House ambitions.

O’Malley, who had started laying the groundwork for a presidential bid following his 2010 reelection as governor, was lagging far behind former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, O’Malley registered support from less than 1 percent of caucus-goers.

“I want to thank everyone who came out to our events and lent me their ear and everyone who went out to caucus for me tonight,” O’Malley told supporters as he announced his decision.
