ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is heading back to South Carolina for the third time this year.

O’Malley is scheduled to campaign on Saturday for state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, who is running for governor.

O’Malley was in South Carolina in September to campaign for Sheheen. He also made a visit in May.

The campaign stop brings O’Malley to an early primary state. The term-limited Democrat is considering a run for the White House in 2016.
