CAMPAIGN ’88 : Sununu to Step Down
Also dropping out of the political chase Monday was Republican Gov. John H. Sununu, who helped the vice president win the crucial New Hampshire GOP primary Feb. 16.
In a surprise move, Sununu, 48, announced in Concord that he will not seek a fourth two-year term. He said he will leave office at the end of his term in January so that he can get a job in the “real world” and spend more time with his family.
“I said when I first ran that I was not going to die an old politician but an old engineer,” the former engineering professor told a packed Statehouse news conference as his wife, Nancy, stood with him.
