LAURIE SANBORN RELEASES THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT ON THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE SPEAKER RACE

Bedford, NH – Republican Representative Laurie Sanborn released the following statement today regarding the race for NH Speaker of the House:

"As many of you know, my husband Andy became ill last week and spent time in the hospital. While the long term prognosis looks good, today there is sufficient uncertainty. At this time, my priority is Andy’s health.

“As such, I recognize that today I cannot give 100% to the role of Speaker, as family always comes first. Therefore, I am withdrawing from the Speaker’s race to focus on family and the job of State Representative.

“I want to thank everyone for their support, hard work and friendship along the way. 

“Andy and I look forward to a great Session and the opportunity to make New Hampshire the best state to live, learn, work and play." –Rep. Laurie Sanborn
