PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s latest visit to New Hampshire is getting mixed reviews from local Democrats.

O’Malley will leave office next year after two terms and is mulling a presidential bid. He delivered a speech Friday night to a dinner gathering of 200 Democrats in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

The Washington Post reports that former state representative Steve Dunfey was among those at the speech. Dunfey says O’Malley gave a good speech, but that he wouldn’t stand a chance against Hillary Rodham Clinton. The former first lady and secretary of state has said she will decide early next year whether to run for president.

The visit to New Hampshire was O’Malley’s fourth. He was scheduled to make political visits to Las Vegas on Saturday and Los Angeles on Sunday.
