Scamman To Replace Gregg?

More

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) has emerged as the leading candidate to be nominated for Secretary of Commerce, but the panic level among Republicans (59 - 1 = dGov + 1 = 60) is lower than it was on Friday.  Chatter among New Hampshire Republicans suggests that Gov. John Lynch (D) is considering appointing Doug Scamman, the former GOP Speaker of the House, well respected by both sides, semi-retired, pushing 70, as a caretaker.  Another possible replacement: J. Bonnie Newman,a former chief of staff to Gregg and Reagan administration official.
