Outgoing Maryland governor discusses plans

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Outgoing Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says he's still seriously considering a run for president in 2016, and he is planning speaking events around the country after he leaves office next week.

O'Malley sat down with reporters Friday in Annapolis. The Democrat says he wants to highlight his use of performance management tools in public office, both as governor and as mayor of Baltimore.

O'Malley says he believes the larger an organization is, the more such performance measurements are needed. He says while they are being used more in local and state government, they could be put to good use in the federal government.

O'Malley, who finishes his second term on Wednesday, also says the main problem the country needs to address is how to make the economy work for everyone.
