“At the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, NH with friends both new and old,” Weld, the Libertarian Party’s 2016 vice presidential candidate, said in a tweet Tuesday morning.

Weld also stopped in Manchester’s Airport Diner, where he said he had a “great reception.”

New Hampshire is a crucial stop for presidential hopefuls because it is the first state to hold primaries in presidential election years.

Weld faces long odds in his primary bid. The Republican National Committee has already voted to express its “undivided support” for Trump as its 2020 nominee, and Trump’s reelection campaign has staffed up with party insiders to line up its delegate strategy well ahead of the party’s convention.

“It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag. It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln – equality, dignity, and opportunity for all,” Weld said in his campaign announcement on Monday. “There is no greater cause on earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.”
