(CNN) – Need another sign that former New York Gov. George Pataki is once again flirting with a bid for the Republican presidential nomination?
If so, here it is: One week after making stops in Iowa, the state that votes first in the presidential primary and caucus calendar, he's now heading to New Hampshire, which holds the first primary in the race for the White House.
Starting Wednesday, Pataki will spend two days in the Granite State, holding meetings, doing radio interviews and speaking Thursday at a roundtable discussion at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on the national debt ceiling crisis. That discussion is being hosted by No American Debt, which touts itself as "an organization that seeks to advance the national dialogue about America's debt crisis." Pataki is honorary chairman of the group.
"Governor Pataki's focus has been on encouraging solutions to America's debt crisis but he has been deeply disappointed by the President's failure to lead and continues to weigh a run," No American Debt spokesman David Catalfamo tells CNN.
Pataki flirted with a run for the GOP nomination in the 2008 cycle but decided against a bid. Earlier this year he ruled out a run in 2012, but then reversed himself.
Pataki won election as New York State governor in 1994. He was reelected in 1998 and 2002.
