Republican Senate President Chuck Morse is in charge between former governor Maggie Hassan's swearing in as a U.S. senator and Governor-elect Chris Sununu's inauguration.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene thinking about the legacy New Hampshire Governor Chuck Morse will leave behind. He became governor Tuesday morning. He will hold office until today at noon. Morse is state Senate president and fill-in governor. The outgoing governor became a U.S. senator. A new governor is sworn in today. For his 60 hours in office, Morse got a full security detail, emergency preparedness briefings and - joke or not - someone reserved wall space in the State House for a portrait. It's MORNING EDITION.
