Smith Changes His Mind on Senate Run

Former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) said he has changed his mind and will try to defeat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) for his old seat next year, WMUR reports.

Smith said that he "had made a decision not to run largely to get out of the way for other candidates, but as weeks came and went no major candidates got into the race, and he kept getting encouragement to run."

Said Smith: "I have a decision to run again for the Senate. This is nothing personally against Jeanne Shaheen, who I like as a person, but I couldn't disagree more with her politics."
