Maryland governor to speak in Mississippi

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is planning to attend a gathering of Mississippi Democrats next month as he continues to mull a 2016 presidential bid.

O'Malley will address the Mississippi Democratic Party's 2014 Jefferson-Jackson-Hamer Dinner on Aug. 15 in Jackson, Mississippi.

The Mississippi state party announced O'Malley as its guest Thursday on its Facebook page, noting "If we get lucky, Governor O'Malley may even break out his guitar!"

O'Malley plays in a Celtic rock band, O'Malley's March.

In addition to considering a run for president, O'Malley is helping Democrats around the country running for office this year. He has traveled in recent weeks to the early presidential nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire, and he's scheduled to speak July 26 at a Democratic Party dinner in Nebraska.
