Maryland Governor Considering White House Run

Posted: Updated:

JERUSALEM (AP) - Maryland's governor, Martin O'Malley, says he is considering a run for the White House in 2016.
    
O'Malley said Wednesday in Jerusalem that he will dedicate more "reflection time" in the later part of this year to deciding whether to seek the Democratic nomination for the 2016 race.
    
O'Malley is frequently touted as a rising star of the Democratic Party. The former Baltimore mayor has successfully promoted a progressive agenda that includes same-sex marriage, gun control laws, banning the death penalty and immigration reform.
    
O'Malley is on an eight-day tour of Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories with a delegation of Maryland officials.
    
During his visit, he intends to visit the traditional birthplace of Jesus, the Palestinian city of Bethlehem, to attend Sunday Mass.
    
This is O'Malley's third visit to Israel.
