Hillary Heaped Praise On Martin O’Malley In 2010 Email

Chuck Ross Investigative Reporter

Martin O’Malley got a nice little plug from Hillary Clinton. The only problem is that it came five years ago when the Democratic presidential candidates were governor of Maryland and secretary of state, respectively.

In an April 25, 2010 email to Maryland U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Clinton inquired about “our friend, Martin.”

“I know he has a rematch when he should be reelected by acclamation for steering the ship of state so well,” Clinton wrote of O’Mally.

The email is one of more than 7,000 released Monday by the State Department.
