Former New Hampshire Governor Jeanne Shaheen will decide in September whether to enter one of the country's most closely watched US Senate races, her husband says.
Shaheen's husband, Billy, told the Globe she will make up her mind in September because, "it is only fair to those currently running that she have her mind made up either way".
This is the first time either Shaheen had given such a firm deadline for a decision.
Shaheen is currently the director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Two weeks ago, the former New Hampshire Democratic Party chair started a "draft Shaheen" movement.
If Shaheen were to get in the race it would likely set-up a scenario where she would have a rematch against Senator John E. Sununu, who defeated her in 2002.
