The event, aides say, provides an opportunity for O’Malley, a former Baltimore mayor, to recount the story of Francis Scott Key writing “The Star-Spangled Banner” after the British had been repelled and he saw the U.S. flag still flying over Fort McHenry. The story, as O’Malley typically tells it, is packed with pride for the people of the city he once led.
O’Malley was last in the Granite State in November for a Jefferson-Jackson dinner.
Aides say O’Malley’s travel to Iowa will be his first time in the state since 2012, when he was the keynote speaker at U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry fundraiser.
