Former Sen. Bob Smith to formally announce run for Senate March 4
Smith will hold a press conference at the state Legislative Office Building to announce his candidacy. Smith said in December he would re-establish New Hampshire residency and seek the nomination to oppose Democratic incumbent Sen. Jeanne Shaheen.
Smith was a U.S. Representative for three terms in the late 1980s, and was elected to the Senate in 1990 to replace the retiring Sen. Gordon Humphrey.
In an interview last December, Smith said he decided to run after discussing the race with family members over the Thanksgiving holiday.
