Donald Trump returns to the Granite State Friday, as he continues to lead the pack among presidential GOP hopefuls.

Trump will hold a rally at Winnicunnet High School in Hampton Friday evening.

This is his first trip back to the Granite State since his dust up with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, and comments he made about her some called offensive.

New Hampshire Republican Party Chairwoman Jennifer Horn told the Boston Globe that Trump’s comments about Kelly were out of line and disrespectful.

A recent poll showed Trump with 18 percent of support among New Hampshire Republican voters, followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 13 percent, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 12 percent.

Former New York Gov. George Pataki will also be in the state Friday

He has six events planned for the day, including stops in Sandown, Henniker, and a fundraiser in Moultonborough.
