ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is scheduled to attend a Democratic dinner in New Hampshire next month.

The Manchester Democrats announced Thursday that the term-limited Democrat who is considering a White House run in 2016 is scheduled to speak at the group's Flag Day Dinner on June 13.

O'Malley spoke at a Democratic Party dinner in New Hampshire in November. He also addressed a 2012 Democratic convention in New Hampshire, which is the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan attended a big Maryland Democratic Party fundraiser in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, O'Malley campaigned for South Carolina state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, who is running for governor there. South Carolina is another early primary state.

Commencement Address

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley is urging students graduating from the University of Maryland to get to work against climate change.

O'Malley gave the commencement address at the state university system's flagship campus in College Park on Thursday. He told students that climate change "is the transformation that transforms everything."

The term-limited Democratic governor is in his last year in office and is considering a run for the White House in 2016.

O'Malley says the technology exists to battle climate change. He says it's only the will to fight it that is lacking.
