Republican George Pataki returned to N.H. Thursday.
The former New York Governor stumped in the North Country and announced a steering committee for what he describes as a likely presidential bid.
Pataki also took aim at Indiana’s controversial religious freedom law.
The law seeks to bar government actions that "substantially burden a person's exercise of religion,” and allows businesses to claim a right to free exercise of religion.
Civil rights groups say this opens the door to discrimination against gays and lesbians.
