MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Back in New Hampshire, former Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley says his party needs to shake off its pity party and face the future.

O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland who dropped out of the 2016 race just before the New Hampshire primary, was back in the state Tuesday for the “Politics & Eggs” lecture series at Saint Anselm College.

He has spent much of the last year helping elect Democrats to state Legislatures in special elections, and says he thinks the party has a chance to win majorities in Congress in the midterm elections. But he says that will only happen if they reject fear about the future, which he calls quote, “the stale currency of our current politics.”

O’Malley has said he hasn’t ruled out another run in 2020.

    The party does have a chance to win majorities in Congress IF and only if they put out respectable candidates. Candidates that are willing to reject the status quo and do what is right for the people who have elected them. People want to vote for candidates that are willing to do what is right and NOT because they are a part of the democratic party. We are tired of voting for the lesser of 2 evils.

  2. When is this lying, corrupt clown going away? Did he use his famous beaten puppy voice? He belonged in prison years ago.
