BROOKLINE, N.H. (AP) - Jack Flanagan, a former member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, says he is withdrawing his name from the state’s Second Congressional District in the 2018 race.

Flanagan, a Republican from Brookline, has served several terms in the House and was majority leader under House Speaker Shawn Jasper.

Flanagan said Friday that said he wanted to refocus on private and personal interests and that there are others in the race who “have the same priorities as I do, and I am encouraged by that.”

Other Republicans in the race include state Rep. Steve Negron and Dr. Stewart Levenson, of Hopkinton. Levenson was one of the doctors behind a whistleblower complaint about care at New Hampshire’s only veterans’ hospital.

U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster, a Democrat, is serving her third term.
