Gov. Martin O'Malley, who is considering a run for president in 2016, will swing through three Midwestern states this weekend -- including Iowa -- the latest stops on a campaign itinerary that has grown more intense ahead of the November midterm elections.

O'Malley, a Democrat, will campaign on Sunday in Iowa City for Jack Hatch, a state lawmaker running an uphill race for governor against incumbent Republican Terry Branstad. The governor has already traveled to Iowa -- the first-in-the-nation presidential nominating state -- twice this summer.

Later Sunday he'll campaign in Milwaukee for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke. He will also appear at public events for Sen. Dick Durbin and Gov. Pat Quinn, both of Illinois, over the weekend.

The dizzying schedule came a day after North Carolina Democrats announced they had booked O'Malley as their keynote speaker at a dinner in mid-October. The governor, whose second term ends in January, already has Florida and New Hampshire on the calendar for later this month.
