According to a Federal Election Commission filing, Chelsea Elizabeth Manning filed her candidacy papers on Thursday.
The whistleblower and transgender activist was released from prison in May 2017 after serving seven years. Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison, but her sentence was commuted by former President Barack Obama.
She came out as transgendered shortly after her sentencing, but the military denied her request for hormone therapy treatment while behind bars. "It is a remarkable gift to the world that Chelsea will be able to grow and fight alongside us for justice".
The seat Manning is vying for is now held by Democrat Ben Cardin, who has held it since 2007.
Manning has long maintained that she leaked the documents in order to spark public debate.

"Police and prosecutors steal more through "civil asset forfeiture" than all "property crime" combined", Manning wrote.
Manning also tweeted: "The worst armed criminals wear uniforms and carry shiny pieces of metal".
