Senate Finance Chair Jeanie Forrester says she is considering a run for governor.
Forrester, a Republican from Meredith, says she was approached by the Republican Governors Association in Washington D.C. months ago but says her attention is on the state budget, which has been in limbo since Gov. Maggie Hassan's veto in June.
“I was flattered; it’s not the priority for me now," Forrester said. "I certainly don’t want to be having the discussion about it; we should be focusing on the budget.”
