Is the 2020 New Hampshire primary already underway?

It may seem like it, with three former presidential candidates in the Granite State this week, including a visit Thursday from Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich.

On the Democratic side, former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley was here Sunday, and this weekend, former vice president Joe Biden will be the keynote speaker at a state Democratic Party fundraiser.

  Former Democratic Presidential candidate Martin O'Malley is returning to the Granite State later this month.

The former Maryland governor will hold a town hall-style meeting at the Baker Library in Bow on April 23, according to WMUR.

He's also scheduled to appear at a pair of house parties with Democratic activists.

O'Malley campaigned aggressively in New Hampshire leading up to the state's first in the nation primary last year.

But he suspended his presidential campaign after a poor showing in the Iowa caucus.

It's no coincidence that Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley has campaigning harder in Iowa than in New Hampshire. 

For a campaign that continues to lag in the polls, he's counting on the Iowa caucus changing the dynamic of what has essentially become a two-person race.

"Once the voters start to vote, that usually changes the dynamic. Not always, but usually. And the first state that comes up is Iowa, so that’s what we’re focused on," O'Malley said during an interview with NHPR's Morning Edition.

There are advantages to leading a presidential race — you attract big crowds, big campaign cash and have more opportunity to get your message out there.

And then there's the 1 percent. We don't mean the superwealthy. We're talking about presidential candidates, like former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who are polling at just 1 percent in many polls.

O'Malley recently introduced himself to an audience of politically active Iowa Democrats, saying, "My name is Martin O'Malley. I am running for president and I need your help."

Since the Democratic National Committee announced last month its schedule of six debates before the presidential primaries and only one in each of the early voting states, Martin O’Malley has made it his mission to change that.

In this year’s Democratic primary, several candidates have made action on climate change a major part of their campaign. This time around they think it could be a winning issue for them in the general election, and they’re also more comfortable using it to draw distinctions between each other.

Democrat Martin O’Malley is campaigning in New Hampshire’s North Country this morning, meeting with a group of Democrats in Berlin.

The former Maryland Governor says while he polls at just five percent in New Hampshire in a new NBC News/Marist College survey, he says that’s up from the one percent he had when he launched his campaign. “It’s my hope that if we continue to meet more and more people and make our case for an economy that works again for all of us, where wages go up instead of down, we’ll garner another five percent in the next forty days,” O'Malley says.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says he'd prefer there were no super PACs, but stopped short of calling on one supporting him to stop airing negative attack ads against Democratic rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"I would hope that we would keep this debate a debate about the issues and I would prefer, not that I'm able to tell a super PAC what to do, I would prefer that we didn't have any super PACs, frankly," he said.
