    BOSTON — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is set to appear in New Hampshire this weekend as he weighs a run for president.

    The two-term Vermont independent has two events scheduled Saturday, including a stop at the Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College in Manchester, N.H. The institute is a regular stop for politicians on the state’s presidential primary circuit.

    New Hampshire traditionally hosts the nation’s first presidential primary. Prospective Republican candidates have been visiting for months ahead of the 2016 contest.

    Things have been quieter on the Democratic side. Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is considered the overwhelming front-runner, should she choose to run.

    Sanders hasn’t said whether he would run as a Democrat or independent. He’s particularly focused on liberal priorities such as economic inequality and global warming.
