The Republican governor of New Hampshire Chris Sununu has confirmed that he will not run for the US Senate in the 2022 midterms, dealing a blow to the GOP's hopes of re-taking control of the chamber.

  • Sununu will instead seek a fourth term as governor of his home state (New Hampshire holds gubernatorial elections every two rather than four years).
  • The GOP had hoped the moderate Sununu would offer a stiff challenge to Democrat incumbent Senator Maggie Hassan, who faces re-election for the first time in 2022.
  • With Sununu passing on the Senate run, the Republicans hopes of taking the seat from Hassan are notably diminished. A number of Republican incumbents are stepping down in 2022, a situation that makes it more difficult for the GOP to make a net gain and take a 51-49 majority control in the Senate.
