Republican Jeanie Forrester promises she won't seek any higher office if elected governor.
Her pledge is partly a swipe at Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, who Forrester and other Republicans say has been an absentee governor since launching her U.S. Senate bid.
Forrester, a three-term state senator, made the promise Thursday. She is also taking a voluntary spending cap that limits her at spending $625,000 in the primary contest. Democrat Steve Marchand is the only other gubernatorial candidate to agree to the cap.
