Counting to resume for GOP gubernatorial, US House races


CONCORD, N.H. >> The counting will resume for two top races that remain too close to call in New Hampshire's primaries.

In the governor's race, the Republican contest remained a tight battle between Executive Councilor Chris Sununu and state Rep. Frank Edelblut. Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas, who was expected to place in the top two, and state Sen. Jeanie Forrester conceded defeat on Tuesday night.

It's also a close race in the 1st Congressional District between Republican U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta and primary challenger, Rich Ashooh. Guinta has struggled since last year, when the Federal Election Commission said he took illegal campaign donations from his parents.

Republicans were meeting Wednesday in Bedford at their annual post-election Unity Breakfast.
