Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate in Maryland

Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate in Maryland

According to federal election filings, Manning completed the paperwork on January 5, and it was delivered on January 11.

The age requirement to run for U.S. Senate is 30 years old.

Formerly a U.S. Army soldier assigned to be an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Department of Defense, Manning leaked classified military documents to WikiLeaks.

That would range her against Ben Cardin, the senior senator from Maryland who has served since 2007. Manning is challenging incumbent U.S. Sen.


Manning was convicted of leaking classified information and spent more than six years behind bars. Manning did not think releasing almost three-quarters of a million documents would threaten national security. She was sentenced to 35 years in August 2013.

President Barack Obama granted clemency to Manning before leaving office. In July, she dissented Trump's choice to forbid transgender individuals from the military at a rally at the White House.

Manning has been active in advocating for LGBT and other causes since being released earlier this year. While people took time to recognize the achievements of law enforcement this past Tuesday, Manning took to Twitter to slam law enforcement.
