Chelsea Manning to run for the Senate in Maryland

The former Navy SEAL Eli crane weighs.

The famous leaker Chelsea Manning attracted national coverage in the context of the announcement of the plans earlier this year to challenge longtime Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin from the left in the Democratic primaries.

But in spite of all the media attention and excitement, which was condemned by liberal activists, the former Army intelligence analyst formerly known as Bradley Manning-who is leaking classified information prior to the transition to a woman, and later, win a commutation from President Barack Obama-has struggled to make a significant mark on the race.

The Baltimore Sun, the largest newspaper in Maryland, reported last week that it is clear whether or not Manning is even the voice of choice more ads before Tuesday’s. The paper, said Manning’s campaign has not responded to requests for comment “for weeks.”

Manning’s campaign did not return a request for comment on Monday by Fox News.

According to Federal Election Commission records, Manning reported that the increase in donors, a paltry $76,355 of the campaign.

And on Twitter, Manning seems to be resigned to losing tweets in the last few weeks, “we can’t expect any change due to the upcoming elections – the primaries are rigged” and “voting won’t change anything.” (Manning, the Twitter description does not reference Senate campaign.)

“I’m sorry – I tried – I’m sorry I let you all down,” Manning wrote in one of the now deleted tweets. “I’m really not cut for this world – I have tried to adapt to this world out here, but I could.”

Shortly after the tweet, Manning’s Twitter handle reported that she was safe and on the phone with friends. “Thank you all for your interest and please, give her some space,” the tweet read.

Manning, then known as Bradley Manning, was arrested in 2010 and convicted in 2013 of leaking a trove of sensitive documents to WikiLeaks. Manning’s sentence was controversially commuted by Obama in 2017, according to Manning served a 35-year sentence was seven years.
