On Sunday, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) argued that Republicans want “someone who can win” as their presidential candidate and continued by saying that former President Donald Trump had lost the last three elections for the GOP.
Sununu argued that Republicans want a win in November of ’24, but that “Donald Trump is a loser. “As he argued he lost House seats in 2018, then he lost the House, the Senate, and the White House in 2020. He proceeded to state that currently there should be 54 GOP U.S. senators right now, but because of his messaging, there aren’t. He continued by saying that currently “Donald Trump is positioning himself to be a four-time loser in 2024.”
Sununu further stated that while many Republicans are supporting the former President during a time when he is facing many legal investigations, that does not necessarily mean that they are also going to vote for him. As he noted, voters are often undecided on who they are going to vote for three weeks before the election, claiming that other candidates are also going to be joining the race which could affect who the GOP nominee will be.
He proceeded to argue that “you can’t govern if you don’t win,” and that Trump was just dragging the “ticket down.” Sununu further claimed that while many people will support him because they believe the case with the DA is political, which is a perspective that Sununu also supports, Republicans want to have someone who will “fight for them” and that Trump so far has just been playing the “victim card.”
