O’Malley on national TV Sunday, booked for speech Monday

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) will step back out onto the national stage early next week, with a scheduled Sunday morning talk show appearance and a speech Monday at the National Press Club.

O’Malley, the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, is booked for a return engagement Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” to discuss “the politics of the week.”

Early last month, O’Malley appeared in a segment on the program with Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R), who is also scheduled to be on this Sunday’s show.

On Monday, O’Malley is scheduled to deliver a “Newsmaker” speech at the Press Club in the District about “how Democratic Governors are leading the way on creating jobs and opportunity in the states,” according to a Press Club promotion.

Both appearances come as O’Malley nears the end of an outspoken year as chairman of the DGA. He is widely expected to be returned to the post by his colleagues for a second year at a meeting next month in Los Angeles.

O’Malley’s DGA travels took him to Seattle this past week for a policy conference on infrastructure, health care and technology.
