  • New Hampshire Republican Chris Sununu announced yesterday he will run for a fourth gubernatorial term in 2022 rather than challenge Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan as many national Republicans had hoped. “I’d rather push myself 120 miles an hour delivering wins for New Hampshire than to slow down, end up on Capitol Hill debating partisan politics without results,” he said. Former Sen. Kelly Ayotte—who lost to Hassan in 2016—also announced Tuesday she would not run for her old seat.

  • Wholesale prices in October increased 0.6 percent month-over-month and 8.6 percent year-over-year, according to Producer Price Index data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Tuesday. The 8.6 percent figure ties September for the largest annual increase since at least 2010.
