Chuck Morse (born October 11, 1960) is the former president of the New Hampshire Senate. He served as Acting Governor of New Hampshire from January 3, 2017, upon Maggie Hassan's resignation as governor, until January 5, 2017, when Chris Sununu was inaugurated. A Republican, Morse represents the 22nd district in the Senate.
He served in the New Hampshire Senate from 2002 through 2006 and led the Senate Finance Committee. He returned to the New Hampshire Senate in 2010 by being elected in the 22nd district that fall. He was chosen as the President of the Senate, succeeding Peter Bragdon, in 2013. Morse currently serves on the Finance Committee.
Morse was re-elected to his Senate seat in 2018, but the Republicans were in the minority by a margin of 14-10 in 2019-2020. The 10 newly-elected Republican members of the State Senate chose Morse as their caucus leader shortly after the election. His successor as President was Democratic State Senator Donna Soucy.
