Stefany Shaheen Out of Governor's Race
Former Portsmouth City councilor StefanyShaheen will not be running for Governor.
Shaheen's decision, first reported by WMUR, follows months of speculation.
Shaheen had been asked by Emily's List, the Washington political action committee dedicated to electing women who support abortion rights, to consider seeking the office her mother, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, held for 6 years.
So far two Democrats have announced they will run. Executive Councilor, Colin Van Ostern, and Mark Connolly, the state's former top securities regulator.
Executive Councilor Chris Sununu and State Rep. Frank Edelblut are meanwhile seeking the Republican nomination.
