Pro-SSM New Hampshire Gov. Lynch Won't Run Again

 

Politicians come and go but good people will always be standing up for marriage:

Democratic Gov. John Lynch says he will not seek a fifth consecutive two-year term as New Hampshire's chief executive.

Lynch made the announcement Thursday, months ahead of the state's June filing period, putting at rest speculation about his intentions and opening up the field.

..Republicans have been attempting to portray him as anti-job and out of step with New Hampshire voters.

They point to his veto of legislation that barred unions from collecting a share of administrative and negotiating costs from non-union members. The GOP-controlled Legislature also overrode his veto of abortion limits on minors. -- AP

As we mentioned recently, efforts are underway to repeal New Hampshire's same-sex marriage legislation.
