CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A slew of advertising in contested primaries for governor is hitting the television airwaves in the week before voters head to the polls.
Polling shows most of the seven major candidates for governor — three Democrats and four Republicans — are unknown to many New Hampshire voters. In the final stretch, television ads provide a quick, though costly, way for candidates to boost name recognition.
The primary election is on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
Republicans Ted Gatsas and Chris Sununu are attacking each other in ads. Democrats Colin Van Ostern and Mark Connolly and Republican state Rep. Frank Edelblut are also running ads.
Records show two candidates, Democrat Steve Marchand and Republican Jeanie Forrester, have not booked any advertising time on WMUR.
