Jasper to seek another term as Speaker

No shock here, but Speaker Jasper will make it official tomorrow. From WMUR’s John DiStaso:

@NHSpeaker of the House Shawn Jasper confirms he’ll announce a second run for Speaker at presser tomorrow 930 a.m. #nhpolitics#WMUR

This will be a half-hour after the recount for GOP candidates in Jasper’s House district (Hillsborough 37, Hudson/Pelham). The recount is not likely to affect his primary result where he finished 8th, with the top 11 qualifying for the general election.

The recount is scheduled to take place at 9 a.m. in room 305 of the Legislative Office Building. The Speaker’s press conference is likely to be held nearby.
