Before Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) heads to Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention, he is making a stop in Tampa for the Republican National Convention.
O’Malley, the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, is scheduled to touch down late Thursday afternoon and has a string of media interviews scheduled into Friday, according to aides.
O’Malley is among those appearing in enemy territory to make the counter argument to that being put forward by Republicans this week. He offered a hint of what’s likely to come on Sunday during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” when he called the GOP a “party of exclusion.”
