Former Governor of Maryland Martin O'Malley waves to the crowd with his wife Katie after formally announcing his campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination in Federal Hill Park in BaltimoreBy Amanda Becker BALTIMORE, Maryland (Reuters) – Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley blasted social injustice and Wall Street excesses as he launched a White House bid on Saturday, casting himself as a younger, more liberal alternative to Democratic Party frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “Powerful, wealthy special interests here at home have used our government to create, in our own country, an economy that is leaving a majority of our people behind,” said O’Malley, opening his 2016 presidential campaign with a rally at a waterfront park in downtown Baltimore. O’Malley, who has aggressively courted his party’s liberal wing, began his political career in Baltimore, first as a member of city council and then as mayor.
