Republican Grant Bosse won the first race of the primary season - he snagged the first spot in line to sign up for the run early Wednesday morning.
The now-official congressional candidate woke up at 4:30 in Hillsboro and was at the State House by 6 a.m. at the Park Street entrance (those doors open first, he said).
"We figured if somebody beat me, they deserved it," Bosse said.
By 8 a.m., when the secretary of state's office opened, he was at the head of a line estimated at 15 strong.
"I wanted to show people that I'm going to work as hard as I can," said Bosse, who is expected to face Jennifer Horn, Bob Clegg and Jim Steiner in a face-off for the Republican nod to challenge Concord Democrat Paul Hodes.
