"Martin O'Malley isn't running to repeat the mistakes of the past — he's offering bold, new and progressive leadership. And unlike the Republican Party, he is proud to believe in science," Ms. Smith said.

"They defend the wrong-headed decision to invade Iraq — a war that cost thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars. When faced with cold, hard scientific facts, they bury their heads in the sand and deny the adverse effects of climate change on the planet. Is it any surprise that Donald Trump is leading the pack?"
