Gov. John H. Sununu Comments on Senator Judd Gregg’s Nomination


CONCORD, NH -- Today, former New Hampshire Governor and Republican State Committee Chairman John H. Sununu released the following statement on Senator Judd Gregg’s (R-NH) Nomination to be Secretary of Commerce:


“I join all New Hampshire residents in thanking Senator Gregg for 28 years of dedicated public service. I know he will carry his high quality of performance and integrity into his new position. Judd is an old friend and we wish him well in this next phase of his distinguished career. I extend my heartfelt wishes for a speedy confirmation and know that his continued commitment to our country will make New Hampshire proud.


When I answered the call to take over as the Republican Party Chairman in New Hampshire, I knew that there was a very real possibility that Senator Gregg would not run for re-election in 2010. I had to make plans knowing that the seat may be open in the next election cycle. We have kept that in mind throughout this process and I’m confident that 2010 will still be a very good year for Republicans in New Hampshire.”
