Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, who is looking and more like a full-fledged Democratic presidential candidate, will get some national exposure Sunday during an appearance on ABC News’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos.

O’Malley, whose booking was announced by the show Friday morning, visited Iowa for two days last weekend and is headed to New Hampshire early next week to participate in a “Politics & Eggs” forum, considered a rite of passage for White House hopefuls in the nation’s first primary state. O’Malley is slated to be back in Iowa, the first caucus state, early next month.

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.
