EXETER, NH - Charlie Bass, former long-time Congressman representing New Hampshire's Second District, endorsed Chris Sununu for Governor today. This latest endorsement was another strong indicator of the early support that Sununu is receiving in his 2016 bid for the corner office.
Former Congressman Charlie Bass (1995 -2007, 2011-2013) said:
"I am pleased to endorse Chris Sununu for Governor. Like myself, Chris loves New Hampshire and is passionate about our traditions of frugality, local control, and being able to live our lives with as much freedom from government as possible. No one will work harder than Chris to restore our New Hampshire Advantage of low taxes and less regulation so individuals and businesses can prosper. We don't need new taxes, we need a new Governor, and Chris Sununu is best qualified to be that Governor."
Chris Sununu offered the following remarks regarding the endorsement:
"Charlie Bass was a model public servant who always put his constituents first. New Hampshire citizens were on a first name basis with him, because Charlie was ever present and always ready to help. He is as fiscally disciplined as they come, but knows how to bring people together, and that's a great example for all to follow. His endorsement means a lot to me, and I'm grateful for Charlie's support and advice as I move forward in my campaign."
