CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A potted tree is no longer blocking a portrait of former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen at the New Hampshire Statehouse.

WMUR-TV reported Monday the tree, which was in front of the portrait in the reception area outside the governor’s office, was no longer there. It wasn’t immediately known where it had been relocated; a message was left with a spokesman for Republican Gov. Chris Sununu.

Portraits of recent former governors are traditionally hung in the reception area. The current display includes Shaheen, a Democrat who became the first woman elected governor in 1996. She’s now a U.S. senator.

Shaheen’s former legal counsel, Judy Reardon, said Sununu’s chief of staff told her the tree had to be in that specific spot. On Friday, Sununu’s spokesman said the tree would be relocated.
