Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley didn't shy away from rumors that he might attempt another run for the presidency in 2020.

Asked about it on Saturday during an interview on MSNBC, O'Malley said, "Sure, I just might."

O'Malley ran a longshot campaign in 2016 for the Democratic nomination. He dropped out eight days before the New Hampshire's second-in-the-nation primary after a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses against Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

O'Malley said Saturday that he is "focused" now on travelling the country providing a boost to Democratic candidates who are running in more immediate races as the 2018 midterms approach, including stops in Virginia and New Jersey.

Looking ahead to these future political contests, O'Malley said, "the beauty of our country is we have the ability to correct our mistakes. The next opportunity to do that is in these mid-term elections coming up all over the country where 36 governors are up."
