N.H. Democratic Party chair will not run again
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Kathy Sullivan announced Saturday she would not seek a fifth term.
"There is no state party in the country that matches the political professionalism, the enthusiasm and the honored tradition of the New Hampshire Democratic Party," Sullivan stated in a release distributed by the state Democratic Party. "I have been blessed by having the best state committee, the most outstanding staff, the most excellent candidates, and the most dedicated volunteers and activists of any national or state Democratic Party in the country."
Sullivan's current term expires in March. She leaves at a time when Democrats defeated two incumbent Republican congressmen and took control of the state House and Senate in the midterm elections.
