An Iowa campaign event for Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley drew one attendee who remains uncommitted to the former Maryland governor.
“The very last event of the night, we actually had a whopping total of one person show up, but by God, he was glad to see me. So we spent the time with him,” Mr. O’Malley told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, speaking from Des Moines, Politico reported.
A tweeted photo by ABC News reporter Sarah Beckman showed a white bearded man in a grey sweatshirt, identified only as Kenneth, sitting across from Mr. O’Malley.
The Democrat said he was “working on” Kenneth for a while, but he, like many others “want to see the whole campaign play out” before deciding on a candidate.
“So I wasn’t surprised that he was uncommitted,” Mr. O’Malley said, Politico reported. “But I was glad he took the time to come out in the snow to see me. We almost canceled that last event but we were out there anyway, so we plowed through.”
A severe snowstorm had forced some presidential candidates, including Republicans Chris Christie and Marco Rubio, to postpone their scheduled campaign stops in Iowa.
