N.H. Attorney General Michael Delaney stepping down

Speculation in recent weeks was that Hassan wanted to ­appoint her own attorney general, but her spokesman, Marc Goldberg, stressed Tuesday that it was Delaney’s decision to step down and that Hassan ‘‘would have been happy if he would have stayed on.’’
