O'Malley headed back to New Hampshire

Gov. Martin O'Malley plans to return to New Hampshire Monday to stump for a U.S. Senate and gubernatorial candidate there, aides said.

The visit marks his fifth trip to this early primary state this year as term-limited O'Malley spends his final months in office laying the groundwork for a possible presidential bid and helping Democrats get elected elsewhere.

As his No. 2 in Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown fights to win a tightening race to succeed O'Malley, the governor has stepped up his out of state travels to campaign on behalf of other Democrats in the midterm election.

Next week, O'Malley lends his name and charisma to Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who is locked in one of the closest and most watched senatorial campaigns in the nation. Shaheen and Republican Scott Brown, a former senator from Massachusetts, are in a statistical dead heat, according to recent polls, with control of the U.S. Senate at stake.

O'Malley will also visit businesses in the Concord area with Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, whose holds a modest lead over Republican challenger Walt Havenstein.
