MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A Republican U.S. Senate candidate who was defeated in the September primary is planning to run for the office again in 2022.

WMUR-TV reports retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc said he’s running for the seat currently occupied by Democrat Maggie Hassan.

Bolduc lost the Sept. 8 Republican primary to Bryant “Corky” Messner, who was endorsed by President Donald Trump. Messner lost to Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen on Election Day, who won her third term.
