LACONIA — District 7 New Hampshire State Sen. Andrew Hosmer, D-Laconia has endorsed former state Director of Securities Mark Connolly for governor.
Connolly, of New Castle, is a New Hampshire native and former New Hampshire state representative who served for 30 yeas and a business and community leader.
Connolly is running against District 2 Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern, whose district includes the Belknap County towns of Barnstead, Gilmanton and Belmont for the Democratic Party nomination in the gubernatorial race.
"Mark's story is about taking on the hard fights and getting results for New Hampshire families," said Hosmer. "Throughout his career in public service and as a business leader, Mark has put politics aside to bring people together and get things done, and I know that's what he'll do as our next governor."
"I am humbled to have Andrew's support. His hard work as a business owner, public servant, and father exemplify what makes New Hampshire great," said Connolly. "Andrew's been a champion for the Lakes Region, and I'm honored to have him join our campaign. We have challenges before us, but Andrew and I, along with thousands of other Granite Staters, believe that our state's best days lie ahead."
