A spokesman has confirmed that former Governor George Pataki is strongly considering entering the crowded race for the Republican presidential nomination.

Sources say Pataki, who left office in 2007, could make an announcement as early as next week.

If he were to run, Pataki would face several major obstacles including launching an operation with little campaign cash and facing several opponents who have been meeting voters in Iowa and New Hampshire for months.

Pataki has been a vocal critic of President Barack Obama's health care plan.

The former governor was recently spotted watching the last Republican presidential debate at a bar in Chelsea.
