State Rep. Pam Tucker (R) said Wednesday that she'll consider running against Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D) only if former Rep. Frank Guinta (R) passes on the race. Tucker: "I am thinking about it. Numerous people have approached me to run and you the phrase in politics: never say never. ... I certainly wouldn't run against Frank, but I understand he is weighing other options now." (WMUR-TV)
Guinta is expected to announce this month that he's launching a comeback bid.
