As part of a busy summer of political travel, Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) has been booked as the keynote speaker at a Democratic party dinner in Nebraska in July.

The Nebraska Democratic Party announced Thursday that O’Malley, who is weighing a 2016 White House bid, would address the annual Morrison Exon Dinner in Omaha on July 26.

The announcement comes at a time when O’Malley also has trips planned to speak at party functions in New Hampshire and Iowa.

“As a leading star of the Democratic Party, Governor O’Malley has undeniably captured the national spotlight,” said Vince Powers, the Nebraska Democratic Party chairman, said in a statement Thursday.

O’Malley has said he is moving ahead with preparations for a possible presidential bid and can’t wait for Hillary Rodham Clinton to decide whether she is running. Aides stress he has made no decision about running, however.
