Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Connolly says he’s back in for an upcoming debate on WMUR TV, after labor dispute negotiations at the station showed signs of progress.

Last week, Mark Connolly had cited the dispute between the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 1228 and WMUR, when he said he would not participate in a debate scheduled for this Tuesday.

Now, the union says it has established a productive dialogue with the station and Connolly is back in.

In a statement, Connolly emphasizes that he was the only one of the three Democratic candidates to threaten a boycott of the debate on the union’s behalf.

The debate is scheduled for this Tuesday at 8pm.
