Former Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley told top Clinton adviser John Podesta he was broke and looking for a job earlier this year, according to an email released on Wikileaks Monday.
Podesta reached out to the former 2016 presidential hopeful shortly after he announced he was dropping out the primary, and attempted to secure his endorsement for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
“Want to know how you are doing and interested to get your observations and advice. We would, of course, love to get your support,” Pedesta wrote.
While O’Malley did not immediately agree to throw his support behind the candidate, waiting until June to formally endorse the former secretary of state, he did offer up information on his less than optimal financial situation.
