In a statement Tuesday, O'Malley praised Mikulski's service and says he expects that "very capable public servants with a desire to serve in the Senate will step up as candidates," and adds: "I will not be one of them."

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Democratic Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia says he'll make a final decision in the next few months about whether to run for president in 2016.

Webb says he'll "move forward" if he gets the right kind of support and financial backing.

The 68-year-old Vietnam War veteran served as Navy secretary under President Ronald Reagan and was a one-term senator.

He says he's "very concerned" about the country's direction. Webb says the U.S. needs to reorient its national security and foreign policy while addressing economic problems faced by many.

In many ways, he can be seen as a transitional figure getting the backing of the more liberal GOP of the Northeast and the beginnings of the Republican Solid South. Delmarva Public Radio's Don Rush spoke with Roger Stone, a political operative who worked for Nixon and who has authored a new book, "Nixon's Secrets", about the former president's role in his party and where the GOP is headed amidst the changing demographics of the 21st century.
