Experts: Chelsea Manning’s Senate run ‘a statement’ (Boston Herald)

Stephen Farnsworth, political science professor at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Va., noted Manning faces an uphill battle against Cardin, who is a plugged-in incumbent.

“It is extremely unlikely he would lose a primary to Chelsea Manning given her controversial past,” Farnsworth said. “Manning might be more successful if she ran for a lower office first, perhaps in a state legislature.”
