Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for "Stormy Daniels," will appear at a Democratic Party picnic this weekend in New Hampshire.

Michael Avenatti says he's considering a 2020 presidential run. He already visited Iowa and on Sunday he'll speak at the Hillsborough County Democrats Summer Picnic in Greenfield.

Roger Lessard leads the local Democratic committee there.  He says the Avenatti visit came together quickly.

"We had not anticipated having anyone of national note appearing at the picnic and this just sort of fell into our lap."

Candidates for offices ranging from state rep to governor are also expected. It will cost $20 for voters to get in, but Lessard attendees will be well fed.

"$20 gets you hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, potato salad, pasta salad, chips, drinks cookies, that sort of thing."

And an early helping of Michael Avenatti.
