For Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), it turns out that June 2 will be a double header of sorts.
Besides addressing Democrats in New Hampshire — home of the nation’s first presidential primaries — O’Malley is also scheduled to speak to Democrats in Maine, an aide confirmed.
The New Hampshire appearance, which was reported in this space last week, is scheduled in the morning of June 2 at the convention of the state Democratic Party.
That evening, O’Malley, who is chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, is also booked to deliver the keynote address at the Maine Democratic Party convention.
The back-to-back northeastern stops come as O’Malley’s national profile continues to grow within the party.
O’Malley, who is regularly mentioned as a possible 2016 candidate for national office, also just oversaw a special session of the Maryland legislature where passage of an income tax increase is likely to become a defining part of his record.
