Chelsea Manning eyes US Senate seat for Maryland

A federal election filing, made on Thursday, confirmed Manning's intention to run in the November elections as a Democrat.

Chelsea Manning, the transgender woman who was convicted of disclosing classified military information to WikiLeaks, has filed a statement to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland.

The race would pit her against two-term Sen. Cardin is Maryland's senior USA senator, elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2012.

Critics of the 1992 decision say it no longer fits a world where much of our commerce happens, at least in part, online . South Dakota has no state income tax and relies heavily on sales taxes to fill state coffers.

Cardin sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and recently commissioned a 200-page report on the interference by Russian Federation in European elections. She was sentenced to 35 years in August 2013. After the sentencing, Manning, who was then known as Bradley, identified as transgender and changed her first name to Chelsea.

In 2013, Manning was convicted for 35 years for the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history, which included military information about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and State Department cables.

Manning is running as a Democrat for the seat now held by Sen.
