Concord, N.H. – After New Hampshire Republicans’ big losses at the top of the ticket in 2014, John H. Sununu hinted in an interview tonight on Hardball with Chris Matthews that he’s already trying to line-up the next NHGOP gubernatorial candidate: his son, Chris Sununu.
“You'd think that after repeated failures for the NHGOP at the top of the ticket, John H. Sununu would stop giving his 'kiss of death' to gubernatorial candidates,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. "Instead, he's doubling down by pushing none-other than his own son to be the next doomed NHGOP candidate for governor.”
“And it’s hard to imagine that anyone could be inspired by a Chris Sununu candidacy except for his own father," added Buckley. "From trying to block thousands of Granite Staters from receiving quality, affordable health care to opposing a business-backed plan to expand passenger rail to Nashua and Manchester, Chris Sununu’s backward agenda would hurt New Hampshire’s middle class families, businesses, and economy.”
“Not to mention that his record on the campaign trail is no better, where his introduction of Scott Brown as a 'phony from New Hampshire’ earned both Sununu and Brown national embarrassment. If that's John H's next candidate for governor, New Hampshire will undoubtedly see a seventh straight term with a Democrat in the corner office,” concluded Buckley.

Hampton Falls - Former New Hampshire Governor and former White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu today called on Senator Harry Reid and Senator Jeanne Shaheen to pull their third party ad pending the outcome of a federal review into potentially illegal coordination. The Associated Press reports that the New Hampshire Republican Party yesterday formally filed a request with the Federal Elections Commission for an investigation:
"Serious questions have been raised about potential illegal coordination between Senator Harry Reid and Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and now a federal investigation is pending. While the Federal Elections Commission investigation is ongoing, the people of New Hampshire should not be subjected to this kind of misrepresentation on the airwaves. Today I am calling on co-conspirators Harry Reid and Jeanne Shaheen to immediately take the potentially illegal ads off the air. Holding elected office is a matter of public trust, and in this case it appears the public trust has been violated. Until we know for sure what has happened, these ads must come down."
Hampton Falls – Former New Hampshire Governor John H. Sununu issued the following statement today on the passing of Executive Councilor Ray Burton:
"I am truly sorry that New Hampshire has lost a great public servant and I am deeply saddened to have lost a good friend. Ray Burton spent nearly forty years working for the North Country, and his service stands as the model of what makes our state great. Ray was always there to serve his constituents and he never let them down.
"Ray’s passing is an enormous loss for New Hampshire, and he will never be replaced. Nancy and I extend our sympathies to his family and ask all Granite Staters to keep them in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."
