Republican voters in New Hampshire are reportedly weary of having a candidate who is “just yelling at them all the time,” according to governor Chris Sununu (R).
“[Republican voters] are waiting for someone … who’s affable, someone they can believe in, someone who’s inspirational, someone who ain’t just yelling at them all the time,” Sununu said during a recent talk radio interview.
According to Sununu, who is thinking about running for president in 2024, there is a big lane open.
According to him, he will probably decide on his own candidacy this summer.
During the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual meeting last week, the governor of New Hampshire issued a similar caution: “no one gets inspired by getting yelled at.”
Sununu began his political career in 2010, when he was elected to the New Hampshire Executive Council. He served in this role for six years before running for Governor in 2016. In the gubernatorial election, he defeated his opponent, Colin Van Ostern, by a narrow margin, and was sworn in as Governor in January 2017.
As Governor, Chris Sununu has focused on a number of key issues, including education, workforce development, and infrastructure. He has also worked to improve the state’s business climate, and has taken steps to make New Hampshire more attractive to businesses and investors.
Sununu has distinguished himself from the rest of the party by being notably moderate on many hot-button social issues. Stances that have caused him to be criticized by more conservative members of the party.
