Chelsea Manning says she's running for US Senate

Chelsea Manning is running for Maryland's Senate 1412018

Chelsea Manning, the former Army private imprisoned for leaking classified government documents, appears to be running for the U.S. Senate.

The Federal Election Commission website shows a January 11 filing for "Chelsea Manning for U.S. Senate" with the party affiliation registered as Democrat - suggesting a primary challenge for Cardin. Also the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Cardin is expected to run for re-election.

She would be challenging Democrat Benjamin L. Cardin, now in his second term and up for reelection in November.

Manning was sent to prison after a 2013 espionage conviction for leaking classified documents to Wikileaks.

Reuters said Ms Manning did not immediately respond to requests for a comment. She will run as a Democrat.

Manning would be taking on Democratic Sen.

Maryland is a heavily-Democratic state, represented in the Senate by Ben Cardin since 2006.

Cardin's campaign had about $2 million on hand as of September 30, according to federal campaign finance records.

Conservative news outlet Red Maryland first reported Manning's candidacy.

"I've had people telling me, 'Maybe you shouldn't be so vocal.' And that's the reason why I'm out here", she said, explaining that she "can't imagine doing anything else right now". Despite her criminal record, can she run for U.S. Senate? Since then, she has written for The Guardian and Medium.com on issues of transparency, free speech and civil liberties, transgender rights and computer security, according to her website.

Reports said Ms Manning moved to Maryland after her release and friends and family raised more than $175,000 to support her through an online campaign. The primary is set for June 28. The general election is November 6.
