Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been booked as the “special guest” at a Democratic dinner in Minnesota next month, adding yet another stop on the party’s speaking circuit.
As he weighs a 2016 White House bid, O’Malley (D) has become a regular at such functions. After the Oct. 11 Founders Day Dinner in Minneapolis, he will have spoken at about a dozen dinners over the course of the past year.
Other upcoming stops include New Hampshire and North Carolina. In recent months, O’Malley has also traveled to California, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.
The dinner in Minnesota is being sponsored by the state’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, which functions as the Democratic party there.
O’Malley, who steps down as governor in January, has said he is preparing for a potential presidential bid regardless of whether Hillary Rodham Clinton runs.
