Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of leaking sensitive military information and whose prison sentence subsequently commuted by President Obama, has filed to run for a Senate seat in Maryland.
The Washington Post, was the first to report the filing.
Manning, then known as Bradley Manning, was responsible for a 2010 leak of highly classified documents to WikiLeaks.
Manning is challenging the seat held by Sen. Ben Cardin, who is currently serving his second term.
