Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley (D) has bumped up his first trip of the year to New Hampshire by about 10 days.

O’Malley, who is weighing a 2016 White House bid, will return to the early primary state on March 6 and 7, aides said Thursday, citing a scheduling conflict with a previously announced trip later that month.

The former governor is now scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at a joint fundraiser for the Merrimack County Democratic Committee and the Concord City Democrats on March 6. He is lined up to appear at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Democratic Party the following day.

O’Malley has said he will probably announce by spring whether he is moving forward with a bid for the Democratic nomination that would likely pit him against Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In addition to his New Hampshire visit, O’Malley is scheduled to visit South Carolina, Iowa, Kansas, New York and Illinois in upcoming weeks. He also has several events planned back home with supporters, including a March 23 “ideas summit”in Baltimore.
