CONCORD, N.H. — Democratic Gov. John Lynch has overcome an anti-incumbent groundswell and defeated Republican John Stephen to win a historic fourth consecutive two-year term as New Hampshire’s governor.

The 57-year-old Lynch faced one of his toughest re-election battles against Stephen, a former health and human services commissioner. Stephen tried to tap voter unrest by promising to cut state spending without raising taxes. He said Lynch’s mismanagement would leave a huge budget deficit for the next governor to fix.

Lynch said he could produce a balanced budget with spending cuts and a moderate growth in state revenues.

Advocacy groups spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on television ads attacking Lynch for signing a law last year legalizing gay marriage.

Libertarian John Babiarz (BAB’-ee-arz) also was on the ballot.
