Supporters of a bill to repeal the death penalty are starting daily candlelight vigils outside of the New Hampshire Statehouse to express their hope that Gov. Chris Sununu will sign it, or allow it to become law.

Both the House and Senate have voted with veto-proof majorities to repeal the state’s capital punishment law. Sununu, a Republican, vetoed a death penalty repeal bill last June and is expected to do the same this year.
