Carol Shea-Porter Not Running for Senate

March 17, 2009


NEW HAMPSHIRE. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (D) announced Monday that she will not run for US Senator in 2010. Congressman Paul Hodes (D) previously entered the race to succeed retiring US Senator Judd Gregg (R). Hodes now looks unlikely to face serious opposition for the Democratic nomination. Former US Senator John Sununu is considering running on the GOP side, and would be viewed as the strongest Republican candidate. Several other Republicans — including former Congressman Charlie Bass and former Governor Steve Merrill — are also looking at the race.
