CONCORD, N.H. — As he continues to express seriousness in a 2016 presidential bid, real estate mogul Donald Trump is returning to New Hampshire.

Trump, a Republican, is taking more steps toward a run than he has in the past, including hiring staff and making plans to open a New Hampshire office. He spoke recently at a gathering of nearly 20 GOP White House hopefuls in Nashua.

He heads back to the early voting state Monday. His quick swing through the state will include a business forum in Salem, a meeting with veterans in Hudson, delivering an address at New England College and speaking at the Concord City Republican Committee’s “Politics and Pie” event.

During a recent visit to New Hampshire, Trump spoke at a House party of Republican state representatives.
