Chris Sununu says he won’t run for governor, Congress
Republican Executive Councilor Chris Sununu told the Union Leader that he will not run for higher office in 2014, though he does intend to seek re-election to his current seat.
Sununu told the newspaper that he had considered seeking any of three offices: governor, the U.S. House or the U.S. Senate. He said his young family and the demands of his job as general manager at the Waterville Valley ski resort were the major reasons for his decision.
A state Democratic Party spokesman responded by saying that the real reason was that the Republican Party was no more popular than a root canal.
