Nice to see that the O’Malley for President campaign’s strong as it’s ever been:

Blame it on the weather or something:
While other presidential candidates canceled Monday events because of the inclement weather in the area, the Democratic candidate continued his Iowa swing, about a month out from the first-in-the-nation caucuses. One man showed up at the event but after meeting with O’Malley wouldn’t say whether he planned to support the former governor.
“The very last event of the night, we actually had a whopping total of one person show up, but by God, he was glad to see me. So we spent the time with him,” O’Malley said in a Tuesday interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”’
An ABC News reporter tweeted a photo of the one-on-one meeting between the man, named Kenneth, and O’Malley in Tama, Iowa. O’Malley, a distant third in the three-person Democratic race, brushed off the fact that Kenneth remained uncommitted after the meeting.
Clearly O’Malley made a very strong case for himself.
This is just getting too sad. “@thehill: Martin O'Malley event in Iowa draws one attendee: https://t.co/hFw44tvEIT pic.twitter.com/9PxqDKaoH2”

Also one more than we’d’ve expected.
But at this stage in the game, he really does need to take whatever he can get.
And it was the Duck Dynasty guy! https://t.co/Pkzq0Gi30f
