Smith Considering Another Gov. Run in N.H.
After failing to win the Republican nomination last year, Kevin Smith is weighing another run for governor in New Hampshire.
"I certainly haven't ruled anything out in terms of running again in '14," Smith told Hotline On Call. "If I did, it would most likely be for governor again."
Smith lost by almost 40 points in the 2012 primary to eventual nominee Ovide Lamontagne, who went on to fall to now-Gov. Maggie Hassan in the general election.
Smith wrote an op-ed in the New Hampshire Union Leader on Friday laying out his expectations for Hassan's first year in office and outlining the economic concerns facing the state.
Since New Hampshire gubernatorial terms only last 2 years, Smith won't have much time to make up his mind. Smith said he remains in touch with his supporters, but he didn't put a timetable on his decision.
"I'm going to be looking to see how the next six months go in terms of how Gov. Hassan does," he said.
