Bill Gardner will be secretary of state for at least the next two years after winning the post in the second round of nail-bitingly close voting Wednesday on Organization Day under the Golden Dome in Concord.

Gardner, 69, of Concord, is the nation’s longest-serving secretary of state and the widely recognized guardian of the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary. He has held the office for the past 42 years.

Former Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern, 39, also of Concord, challenged Gardner for the position.
