CONCORD – First John Kasich.
Then Joe Biden.
Now Martin O’Malley.
NH1 News confirmed on Wednesday that the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate is making a trip to New Hampshire on Sunday April 23. The former two-term Maryland governor and two-term Baltimore mayor is expected to make multiple stops in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state that day.
While O’Malley’s made a couple of visits to Iowa (which traditionally holds the first caucus in the race for the White House) and one to South Carolina (which holds the first southern contest) since November’s election, this will be his first stop in the Granite State.
O’Malley’s trip comes one week before former Vice President Joe Biden will be in New Hampshire. Biden will be giving the keynote address at the McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner, which is the state Democratic Party’s major spring fundraising event. News of Biden’s visit sparked more speculation that the former vice president was mulling one more bid for the presidency.
O’Malley’s visit also comes a couple of days before Ohio Gov. John Kasich returns to New Hampshire, for the first time since last summer, as part of his national book tour. Kasich’s tour for his book, titled “Two Paths: America Divided or United,” kicks off on April 25. His stop in the Granite State, at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, comes just two days later.
Kasich came in second in last year’s GOP presidential primary in New Hampshire, behind Donald Trump, boosting his once long shot campaign for the Republican nomination. Kasich refused to back Trump after the billionaire businessman captured the GOP nomination, and the Ohio governor avoided attending the Republican National Convention, which was held in Cleveland. Although he said last month that he doesn’t intend to primary challenge the President in the 2020 cycle, Kasich’s visit to New Hampshire is sparking speculation that he’s considering another White House run.
O’Malley concentrated many of his efforts in Iowa, but did spend a decent amount of time campaigning in the Granite State in 2015 and January 2016. O’Malley dropped his bid for the Democratic nomination days before the New Hampshire primary, after a dismal finish behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Iowa caucuses.
Among the stops are a Salem Democratic Town Committee house party at 11:30am at the home of Mark and Beth Roth, a Bedford Democratic Committee gathering at the home of Pam Van Arsdale and Bob Dewey at 4pm, and a 6pm town hall hosted by Kent Street Coalition, the Hopkinton Democrats, Concord Democrats, Merrimack County Democrats, and Canterbury Citizens for Democracy at the Baker Free Library in Bow.
