ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A lawyer from a New Mexico town renowned as the site of an alleged 1947 UFO crash says he will challenge President Donald Trump in New Hampshire.

The Roswell Daily Record reports Roswell, New Mexico, attorney Rick Kraft has filed the paperwork needed to appear on the ballot as a Republican candidate in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

According to the New Hampshire Secretary of State’s website, Kraft filed his declaration of candidacy on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old Kraft says he decided to run after he and his wife visited the New Hampshire State House in Concord, New Hampshire, and learned how easy it is to get on the ballot. He called the move “a bucket list-type thing.”


Kraft says he does not plan on entering any other state primaries or caucuses.
