    In this December 13, 2016 photo, U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., speaks during an event in Beverly, Massachusetts. Moulton, who represents Salem, took issue on Thursday, May 18, 2017, with President Donald Trump's claim of being the target of the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history." Nineteen men and women were hanged and one man was crushed to death during witch trials in Salem in 1692.

    Rep. Seth Moulton will be visiting New Hampshire amidst speculation as to whether he will run for president, The Boston Globe reported on Wednesday.

    On Feb. 2, Moulton, a Democrat from Salem, Massachusetts, will appear before the Bedford Democratic Committee.

    Although Seth Moulton is unlikely to declare a run for the presidency soon, The Boston Globe reported that Moulton dodged the question of a presidential candidacy several times when pressed in a meeting with their editorial board.

    Moulton spokesperson Matt Corridoni addressed the speaking event by explaining that the representative is "always happy to accept invitations to speak with Democratic groups especially ones so close to home."

    With no signs of compromise on either side of the isle, the partial government shutdown entered day 24 on Monday. Two Massachusetts members of Congress say given the bipartisan support in Congress on immigration issues, it's really about President Donald Trump who won't take "yes" for an answer.

    Still, The Boston Globe predicts that this visit to New Hampshire will re-ignite rumors that Moulton will run for president.

    The visit comes at a time when many Democrats, including Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, are exploring bids for the Democratic nomination.
