Portsmouth resident Dan Innis announced on Thursday a bid for New Hampshire’s District One seat in Congress. In the primary, Innis will run against incumbent Frank Guinta, who has faced scrutiny after accepting an illegal campaign donation from his parents in 2010.

Dan Innis was a close second to Guinta in the 2014 Republican primary. He is the former dean of UNH’s Paul College of Business, and sums up his politics like this:

"I am an absolute fiscal conservative, I believe in states’ rights, I think too much power has been consolidated in Washington and taken away from the states."

On social issues, Innis describes himself as more moderate.
