State Sen. Jeanie Forrester is poised to become the fourth Republican candidate to enter New Hampshire's gubernatorial race.

Mike Dennehy, a GOP strategist who is working with Forrester, says she'll announce her bid on March 30 in her hometown of Meredith.

She is running to succeed outgoing Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is running for U.S. Senate. Forrester is entering a four-way GOP primary alongside Executive Councilor Chris Sununu, Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas and state Rep. Frank Edelblut.

Forrester is in her third term as a state senator and chairs the Senate Finance Committee, which oversees the budget writing process. Forrester runs an environmental technology business in Meredith and serves on a number of community boards. She previously served as a town administrator.
