There are advantages to leading a presidential race — you attract big crowds, big campaign cash and have more opportunity to get your message out there.

O'Malley recently introduced himself to an audience of politically active Iowa Democrats, saying, "My name is Martin O'Malley. I am running for president and I need your help."
