( – New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) argued in a recent appearance on MSNBC that former President Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination in 2024 would harm the chances of other Republicans to win in different elections on his state’s ballot.

On Monday Sununu told host Jen Psaki that there was no question that Trump on the ticket would be harmful to the Senate and gubernatorial races for the party. He argued that this was the reason he loved former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley because even if she did not win and only ended up winning in the swing states, she would still make it easier for Republicans overall to win.

In December Sununu endorsed Haley. Following his endorsement, he has spent the last month campaigning for Haley across his state ahead of the first-in-the-nation primary.

The Hill/Decision Desk HQ polling averages have shown that Trump continues to lead in the New Hampshire primary with 50.6 percent. However, Haley continues to steadily climb in the polls and according to the polls, she currently has 36.8 percent support in the state.

Sununu during the interview with Psaki on Monday focused on the power of Haley against U.S. President Joe Biden. He argued that Biden has a chance of defeating Trump in his state’s elections; the polls have clearly shown that Haley is leading against the Democratic incumbent.

The governor has argued that between Trump and Biden the race would be a “nail-biter.” He added that this was not what they wanted and that he was tired of the GOP losing races.
