O'Malley announces New Hampshire trip, swipes at Clinton

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will travel to New Hampshire next month, his third trip to the early presidential primary state this year.

O'Malley who has said he will make up his mind about running for president by the end of May, will speak at a fundraiser and a house party of a former state official. The events were first reported by The Boston Globe.

The announcement came on the same day that O'Malley took his latest swipe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who announced her candidacy earlier this month. In an email to supporters, O'Malley reiterated his opposition to trade legislation working its way through the Senate.

"American workers whose jobs could be on the line right now are owed more than lip service," he wrote in the email. "They deserve to know where leaders stand."

The email came days after the Clinton campaign issued a statement that hedged on whether Clinton supports the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal the Obama administration is negotiating with 11 other Pacific Rim nations. Liberal Democrats and many unions oppose the trade agreements, as well as an effort underway in Congress to "fast track" their approval.

O'Malley's email carried the subject line "Hard Choice?" a reference to the title of Clinton's 2014 book.

"Nope," O'Malley says in the email. "To me, opposing bad trade deals like TPP is just common sense."

Clinton wrapped up a swing through New Hampshire on Wednesday that included a number of low-key events. O'Malley was last in the state at the end of March.
