ALBANY, N.Y. — Former New York Gov. George Pataki says he’ll announce May 28 in New Hampshire whether he will seek the Republican nomination for president.

He made the announcement Thursday on social media and on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Pataki has made repeated visits to New Hampshire since saying in January he was considering a White House campaign. He said the nation can’t risk electing another Democratic president.

Pataki flirted with running for president in 2008 and 2012. The 69-year-old Republican was governor of New York from 1995 to 2006. He has cited his electoral success in the heavily Democratic state as well as his ability to work with Democrats as his strengths.
