The New Hampshire Legislature has defeated a pair of bills filed in response to the hotly contested secretary of state’s race last year.
Longtime Secretary of State Bill Gardner barely survived a challenge by former Democratic gubernatorial Colin Van Ostern in December when lawmakers re-elected him to a 22nd term. After Van Ostern amassed more than $200,000 in his unsuccessful bid, lawmakers proposed bills that would limit campaigning for that office and for state treasurer, who also elected by the Legislature.
