A month after his last visit, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is returning to New Hampshire as he moves closer to a 2016 presidential campaign.
Since leaving office in January, Perry has been ramping up his political operation and traveling to early voting states. He will be in Bedford, Concord and Gorham on Thursday, followed by stops in Lancaster, Littleton, Meredith and Belmont on Friday.
Perry dropped out of the 2012 presidential race soon after finishing sixth in New Hampshire's Republican primary. He has yet to declare his plans for 2016, but a handful of his former aides and allies launched a super PAC last week that can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money on his behalf.
