When lawmakers convened to take oaths of office and pick a speaker, a deadlock was broken only when all seven members of GOP leadership and nine other Republicans joined all Democrats to elect Rep. Mark Rozzi, of the Reading area, as House speaker. Rozzi promised to act as an independent, saying he would caucus with neither party. (AP Photo/Matt Smith, file)
FILE – New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu walks with House Speaker Sherm Packard, R-Londonderry, at the State House in Concord, N.H., on Jan. 7, 2021. In New Hampshire, the 400-member House convened with Republicans holding a razor thin 201-197 majority, with two seats vacant. Slightly more Democrats than Republicans were absent last month when members chose their leader, though, which gave the GOP a bit of breathing room when it came to re-electing state Packard as House speaker. Gov. Sununu called the nearly even division a “awesome opportunity” for cooperation. (David Lane/The Union Leader via AP, Pool, File)
