On The Political Front For April 15

Apr 15, 2013

John H. Sununu announces he will not challenge Jeanne Shaheen in the 2014 US Senate race; former Senator Scott Brown visited New Hampshire this weekend, but is not saying yet if he intends to make a Senate run in NH; other possibilities for 2014 include Frank Guinta and Jeb Bradley. The casino bill passed by the NH Senate gets a public hearing in the House before heading to subcommittees; three NH House lawmakers are filing complaints against 189 other members of the House for voting to repeal the "Stand Your Ground" law, which they allege was a "breach of the public trust," while parallel complaints have been filed by for NH GOP Chairman Jack Kimball; this issue is expected to continue to flare up until the Senate votes on the repeal.
