Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley told MSNBC that he is considering another run for president after an unsuccessful 2016 campaign. O’Malley dropped out of the race for Democratic candidate in the last election cycle after a dismal showing during the Iowa caucuses.
When asked in September by the news channel if he would be running for the presidency in 2020, O’Malley responded, “Sure, I just might.”
He served two terms as governor of Maryland, during which he legalized same-sex marriage, increased minimum wage, enacted new gun control laws, repealed the death penalty, provided in-state tuition for some undocumented immigrants, and decriminalized small amounts of marijuana.

Though former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder hasn’t explicitly stated that he will run, he has hinted that a 2020 campaign could be in the cards for him.
“I thought, frankly, along with everybody else, that after the election, with Hillary Clinton as president, I could walk off the field,” he told Yahoo! News in June. “So when she didn’t win, I thought, ‘We’ll have to see how this plays out.’ But it became clear relatively soon — and certainly sooner than I expected — that I had to get back on the field and be in effective opposition.”
Holder was a member of Barack Obama’s vice presidential selection team and was the first African American to hold the office of U.S. attorney general. He currently serves as chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which aims to fight Republican gerrymandering and ensures that the next round of redistricting is fair and more accurately reflects voters.

Outspoken rapper Kanye West announced his plans to run for president while accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
“If my grandfather was here right now he would not let me back down!” West said toward the end of his lengthy acceptance speech. “I don’t know I’m fitting to lose after this. It don’t matter though, because it ain’t about me. It’s about ideas. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”
West confirmed his plans to run during a November 2016 concert in San Jose, Calif., E! News reported.
“I’m concerned about putting our concept of how to do the [president’s] job in a new way and if no one will do it in that way, I will take position in 2020 and do it myself,” he said.

Congressman John Delaney officially announced his candidacy with an op-ed published in the Washington Post in July titled “Why I’m Running for President.”
“The American people are far greater than the sum of our political parties,” he wrote. “It is time for us to rise above our broken politics and renew the spirit that enabled us to achieve the seemingly impossible. This is why I am running for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.”
Delaney stated his focus would be on preparing the country for the future and reforming the current education, healthcare and immigration systems.
Maryland’s U.S. Representative was named one of the 50 World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune for proposing business-friendly solutions to infrastructure problems. Though he comes from working-class roots, he’s rumored to be worth around $100 million, according to Forbes. Celebrity Net Worth, however, reports his net worth is $180 million.

Wrestling pro-turned-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson told GQ in May that he is considering running for the country’s highest political office. “I think that it’s a real possibility,” he said when asked if he would run for president.
“Personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important. Leadership would be important,” the “Baywatch” star told the magazine. “[If I didn’t agree with someone] on something, I wouldn’t shut them out. I would actually include them. The first thing we’d do is we’d come and sit down and we’d talk about it.”

Billionaire investor Mark Cuban told Cheddar he was considering a presidential run during an interview in September. “Is it something I’ve considered? Yes. Is it something that I’ve dreamed of doing? No,” he said.
Cuban — who sold the video portal Broadcast.com to Yahoo! for $5.7 billion in 1999 — says he is already working on a couple of projects that could have large impacts on the American population and our political system.
“If I did [run for president], it wouldn’t be me saying, ‘Look, just vote for me.’ I’d come in with solutions,” said the “Shark Tank” star. “I’m working on a healthcare project, working on a ballot initiative to make it easier for alternative candidates to get on state ballots for federal offices. So there’s a variety of things that I think will have an impact that I’m working on personally.”
If elected, he would be one of the richest U.S. presidents of all time.

2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein might take another stab at running for president in 2020.
When asked if she would be running in the next election cycle during a March interview with The Press-Enterprise, Stein replied, “I am certainly going to be fighting to the fullest of my ability. And whether that is running for president, running for some other office, or helping other people run, I describe myself as a mother on fire. We don’t forget that we have a world that’s going down in flames and that we have a generation locked into debt that can’t get out of it and a climate that’s going down the tubes rather rapidly. So my every waking moment is spent trying to create a world that will work for all of us, because it’s slipping through our fingers rather quickly.”
Stein is a practicing physician and environmental health advocate. She is the co-founder of the Massachusetts Coalition for Healthy Communities.
