CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The Secretary of State’s office will be bustling this week as candidates for Congress, governor and other statewide offices come to file their official paperwork to run for office.

The filing period opened last week and closes Friday. In bigger races, the candidates are often accompanied by dozens of supporters - and sometimes protesters - as they enter the Statehouse and sign the papers. All seven gubernatorial candidates plan to file this week, while many congressional candidates filed last week.

Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan is filing her paperwork to run for U.S. Senate early Monday afternoon.

The filings come as the legislative session is wrapping up, marking an unofficial start to summer and the campaign season.
