Previously, Executive Councilor Andru Volinsky (D) had been looking seriously at entering the gubernatorial campaign, but has now decided against running. He made the announcement yesterday. This still leaves only former Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand as the lone official Democratic candidate. New Hampshire has the most unpredictable electorate in the country so no elected official can be considered politically safe. We can expect a competitive gubernatorial race here next year regardless of who eventually becomes Gov. Sununu’s Democratic opponent.
