“We reached out to him and we had reached out some time ago, probably at the beginning of May,” Kevin Smith, executive director of Cornerstone, said. “So it was actually before any of the rumors about him being serious about running for president.”

In addition to being home to the first primary contest, New Hampshire is a traditional stop for most presidential candidates.

“I think if he does decide to run, he’d be a great candidate. I think he would only add to the field of the current crop of candidates,” said Smith.
