The New Hampshire Republican nominee for governor — Joe Kenney — got 93 percent of the vote in last week’s primary. Kenney was running unopposed. But more than a quarter of Republicans casting ballots skipped the governor’s race entirely.

Kenney is a state senator from Wakefield, hoping to unseat Democratic Governor John Lynch. In what could be a sign of the tough fight Kenney faces, more than 3,000 Republicans wrote in Lynch’s name on their GOP primary ballots. Just 49 wrote in Kenney’s name on the Democratic ballot.
