Chelsea Manning Running for U.S. Senate in Maryland

HeadlineJan 16, 2018
H 08

Former U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning is running for U.S. Senate in Maryland. This is a clip of her new campaign ad, which features images of the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.

Chelsea Manning: “We live in trying times, times of fear, of suppression, of hate. We need to stop expecting that our systems will somehow fix themselves. We need to actually take the reins of power from them. You’re damn right we got this.”

That’s Chelsea Manning, speaking in her new campaign ad announcing her run for U.S. Senate in Maryland. She’ll face Democratic incumbent Senator Benjamin Cardin in the Democratic primary later this year.
