CHARLOTTE — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said Thursday that he and his wife will start to focus on his political future after the November election — but added that they are in no great hurry to figure out his plans.
O’Malley (D), who is widely assumed to be eyeing a 2016 bid for president, has kept a jam-packed schedule at the Democratic National Convention. That has included appearances at numerous state delegation breakfasts — he hit Florida and South Carolina on Thursday — and a convention speech Tuesday that got tepid reviews.
“I’m focused on one thing and one thing only right now, and that is doing what’s best for my own state, which means reelecting Barack Obama president of the United States,” O’Malley told the Post’s Mary Jordan in an interview. “After we reelect the president, then Katie and I will try to figure out what’s next for us.”
