The governor then urges supporters to "continue to move forward."  President Obama used "Forward" as the slogan for his reelection campaign.

O'Malley's term as governor ends in January 2015, and it has been widely speculated that he will contend for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In an interview with the Washington Blade last month, O'Malley downplayed, but did not rule out, a 2016 bid.

“I’m running mostly to get some more sleep and some more time with my family lately,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to these next two years because with the president’s re-election we’re going to be able to solidify some important strides forward on health care and public safety and moving our state to the other side of this recession. So those are all the things I’m thinking about. I haven’t really given any thought to 2016.”
