New Hampshire Democratic gubernatorial candidate Colin Van Ostern says he's disappointed in the results of the election, but he respects the will of the voters and wishes Republican winner Chris Sununu congratulations.

The race declaring Sununu New Hampshire's next governor was called early this morning.

Sununu will replace Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, who ran for the U.S. Senate. That race, against incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte, remains too close to call.
