Being one of two states that limit their gubernatorial terms to only two years – neighboring Vermont is the other – New Hampshire state chief executives are always running. Late this week, Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has drawn his first major Democratic challenger.
Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky (D), a strong Bernie Sanders backer in 2016, made public through an email message to supporters that he will enter the Democratic gubernatorial primary in hopes of winning the opportunity of challenging the two-term Republican Governor. As always in New Hampshire, any statewide race has the potential of being decided by just a few votes. In November, Gov. Sununu was re-elected with a closer-than-expected 53-46% margin.
