Another Dem says no thank you to Hillary Clinton.
Gary Hart, the presidential hopeful for whom Martin O’Malley toiled more than 30 years ago, plans to support the former Maryland governor if he moves forward with a 2016 White House bid, Hart said Wednesday.
“I’m obliged to, if nothing else, because he supported me,” Hart said in an interview, adding that “it would be helpful to have generational change.”
O’Malley, 52, has said he will decide by the end of next month whether he will challenge Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination. He is 15 years younger than Clinton, the former secretary of state, New York senator and first lady.
“Times change,” said Hart, 78, a former Colorado senator. “The next decade is going to be a different world than the Clinton years.”
