State At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Joseph Foster (D) told Gov. Chris Sununu (R) “and the Ex­ec­ut­ive Coun­cil that he is resign­ing from his post ef­fect­ive March 31, which hap­pens to be the same day that his four-year term ends. … [H]is exit im­me­di­ately puts him in the spec­u­la­tion mix among Demo­crats who may be urged to run for of­fice next year. Foster is highly re­spec­ted in the party, and his work as AG has been without con­tro­versy. He’s also a former three-term state sen­at­or who was the Sen­ate ma­jor­ity lead­er in 2007 and 2008.” (WMUR)

ON THE RE­CORD. “Sununu says he’s a big sup­port­er of re­peal­ing and re­pla­cing the cur­rent fed­er­al health care law. But when it comes to the U.S. House GOP lead­er­ship plan to do just that, New Hamp­shire’s first Re­pub­lic­an gov­ernor in a dozen years says ‘we have some con­cerns, without a doubt.’”

Sununu: “We need to make sure that the state has flex­ib­il­ity in what we’re go­ing to do, the state has some say in mak­ing sure we can design a sys­tem that meets the needs of our cit­izens. There are parts of this bill that don’t ne­ces­sar­ily in­cor­por­ate that.” (NH1)
