Chelsea Manning Runs For Senate But The Web Is Unsure About It All

Chealsea Manning is running for senate.

Chelsea Manning is one of the names that made headlines during the Obama administration.

Formerly known as Bradley Manning, the transgender who was sentenced to prison for leaking 700,000 classified information back in 2010 to Wikileaks, is now running for senate.

Former President Barack Obama commuted her sentence from 35-years-to-life down to only four months. Now, Manning is coming back to the spotlight after she announced her new bid for the senatorial race.

According to BBC, the 30-year-old will challenge Democratic Senator Ben Cardin for the nomination. Manning’s petition to run was filed on Jan. 11, which means she will be one of the four candidates to vie for the position.

Though Manning has the strengths to represent Democratic constituents, with her having a background in the LGBT community, military community and academia, there are still a lot of negative feedback on her run.
