The former governor has been aggressively positioning himself to run as a more liberal and more forward-looking alternative to Hillary Rodham Clinton, the presumptive frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. O’Malley has said he expects to decide whether to move forward with a bid by May.
“This Week” will be O’Malley’s first appearance of the year on the Sunday talk-show circuit. He appeared regularly as a surrogate for President Obama and other Democrats in the run-up to the 2012 election, a stretch when O’Malley was chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.
Stephanopoulos, who will interview O’Malley on Sunday, is a former communications director for President Bill Clinton.
