New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu Slams Rand Paul for His Attack on Nikki Haley

Governor Chris Sununu of New Hampshire retaliated against Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) for his recent criticisms of Nikki Haley, a candidate for president whom Sununu has endorsed.

Since the governor of Granite State endorsed Haley a month ago, she has risen in the polls and moved closer to former president and frontrunner Donald Trump. In the interim, Paul has initiated an anti-Haley campaign.

On Friday, while appearing on Newsmax, Sununu was questioned regarding Paul’s campaign.

“What does this mean for her campaign?” a Newsmax host asked.

“What does Rand Paul mean? Nothing. I’m sorry, but nobody cares what Rand Paul thinks in this race. This race is in Iowa and New Hampshire, it’s in South Carolina. She’s the only candidate that’s surging.” Sununu said in response.

“We’ve made it effectively a one-on-one race at this point between Nikki and Donald Trump.” he continued.

“Maybe when the U.S. Senate actually starts doing something and actually starts delivering some results, they can stand on a soapbox and think that their words matter. But until then, sorry, Rand Paul. nobody cares.” Sununu concluded later in the interview.
