Former Congressman Charles Bass announced yesterday he won’t seek the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.
“After much thought and several discussions with my family, friends and colleagues, I have decided that I will not be a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2014,” Bass said.
He said personal and professional responsibilities will preclude him from running, but thanked those who had encouraged his candidacy.
