Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) has been booked in Las Vegas next month as part of an ongoing effort to broaden his exposure in advance of a possible 2016 presidential run.

The Clark County Democratic Party announced Monday that O’Malley would be the keynote speaker at its annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on May 2.

The county is the largest in Nevada, an early presidential nominating state, and it includes the city of Las Vegas.

In a statement, O’Malley said he was honored to be helping candidates on the ballot this year in Nevada, which he called “ground zero in the fight to take back the House of Representatives and end tea-party obstructionism.”

O’Malley appeared in Milwaukee on Saturday night at a dinner for Wisconsin Democrats. He addressed California Democrats gathered in Los Angeles last month.
