Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas says he'll seek a fifth term as head of New Hampshire's largest city.

Gatsas made the announcement Wednesday.

"I am proud of all that our city has achieved together, and in the next two years we will build on this foundation for the good of all," Gatsas said in a prepared statement.

Gatsas was first elected mayor in 2009. He ran an unsuccessful bid for governor last year, finishing third in the Republican primary.

Gatsas narrowly beat former alderman and Democrat Joyce Craig by just 64 votes in the 2015 election. 

This could set up a potential rematch between Gatsas and Craig, who has already announced her bid for mayor.
