New Hampshire Governor Will Not Seek Re-Election

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch announced earlier today that he will not seek a fifth term as governor of the Granite State.

Lynch, who was first elected in 2004, made the announcement at a Manchester elementary school. Lynch's announcement came a day after a House subcommittee approved a bill that would repeal New Hampshire's marriage equality law.

Lynch signed the measure in June 2009, but the National Organization for Marriage attacked his pro-marriage equality stance ahead of last November's election. Republicans swept statewide contests, but Lynch was re-elected for a fourth term with 52 percent of the vote.
