BOSTON (AP) - Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld is expected to discuss his status as a possible candidate for president this week.

On Friday, Weld will be the featured speaker at a “Politics & Eggs” event in Bedford, New Hampshire.

Weld has indicated he may discuss his potential political plans during the Friday morning visit.

Weld recently changed his party registration from Libertarian back to Republican as he mulls a possible primary challenge against President Donald Trump.

Weld served as a Republican governor from 1991 until 1997. He later became a Libertarian and ran for vice president on a ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson in the 2016 election.

If he decides to launch a run for president as a Republican, he could be Trump’s first challenger from within the party.
