Martin O'Malley is considering another presidential run in 2020: report


One failed 2016 presidential candidate might take Aaliyah's advice and try again, try again.

Former Maryland governor, and third wheel during multiple 2016 Democratic primary debates, Martin O'Malley is polling caucus voters in Iowa about a possible 2020 presidential run, according to POLITICO.

His PAC commissioned a survey that showed O'Malley leading a pack of potential candidates with 18% of the vote. The names included potential 2020 rivals Cory Booker, Andrew Cuomo, and Kirsten Gillibrand, among others. The list provides insight into who the former Maryland governor may view as his potential competition if he were to run.

However left-wing heavy-hitters Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were not included in the poll.

O'Malley isn't the first name to already be rumored for a 2020 run. Multiple Democratic senators have had their names in the news including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, California's Kamala Harris, Ohio's Sherrod Brown, Oregon's Jeff Merkley.

Even 'SNL' alumni and current Minnesota Senator Al Franken has received a push to challenge Donald Trump in 2020.

"If Trump has truly changed all political calculus as to how you run and win, however, Franken starts to look like a more appealing choice than anyone," wrote Chris Cillizza for the Washington Post.

As far as O'Malley is concerned, it should be pointed out he got less than 1 percent of the vote in Democratic primary before dropping out after a dismal showing in Iowa.
