Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, a Republican, said on Wednesday that he would not run for re-election in 2024, opening up a seat in a battleground state that Democrats will be eager to take.
Mr. Sununu made the announcement in an email to supporters.
“This was no easy decision as I truly love serving as governor,” he wrote. “Public service should never be a career, and the time is right for another Republican to lead our great state.”
Mr. Sununu, 48, is serving his fourth two-year term as governor. He recently decided against two opportunities to run for higher office: He declined to run for Senate last year, and for president this year. His next steps are unclear.
