O’Malley adds N.C. keynote appearance

(AP) Gov. Martin O’Malley has another keynote address scheduled at a Democratic dinner outside of Maryland. The North Carolina Democratic Party has announced O’Malley will speak at its 2014 Western Gala in Asheville, North Carolina, on Oct. 18. The governor has said he’s seriously considering running for president in 2016. O’Malley’s second term ends in January. North Carolina will be the 11th state where O’Malley will have delivered a keynote address at a Democratic dinner this year. The others are California, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin. O’Malley is scheduled to make his third trip to New Hampshire this year on Sept. 26. He will be returning to the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state for the Portsmouth City Democrats’ fall dinner.
