Sanford mulls GOP challenge to Trump, heads to New Hampshire

By The Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Rep. Mark Sanford, a former South Carolina governor, is heading to another early voting state as he continues to mull the possibility of mounting an uphill challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.

A spokeswoman confirmed that Sanford would travel Tuesday night to New Hampshire for meetings.

Last month, Sanford said he would take 30 days to decide if he would run against Trump or possibly start a think tank devoted to fiscal conservatism, saying he was determined to bring debt and fiscal restraint into the national conversation.

Sanford's motivations immediately drew skepticism from some South Carolina political observers who have watched him plot a political comeback before and questioned whether he was merely seeking publicity.
