Chris Sununu Will Not Run For President In 2024, Says ‘Beating Trump Is More Important’

June 5, 2023

After flirting with a run, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has announced he won’t seek the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

Sununu made the announcement in an op-ed column in The Washington Post published on Monday, June 5.

In it, he criticized Trump for failing to implement Trump’s policy promises and leading Republicans to losses in the 2020 presidential election and the 2018 and 2022 midterms.

Trump “did not deliver on his promises to drain the swamp, secure the border and instill fiscal responsibility while in office — and added $8 trillion to our national debt,” Sununu wrote, “yet now he wants four more years.”

“He is facing numerous investigations and continues to peddle the conspiracy theory that he won the 2020 election, repelling independents. If he is the nominee, Republicans will lose again. Just as we did in 2018, 2020 and 2022. This is indisputable, and I am not willing to let it happen without a fight,” he continued.

Sununu also said that as New Hampshire governor, he would be in a better position to help defeat Trump than if he were running against him.

Trump is currently leading the New Hampshire polls, with 41 percent of Republicans supporting him. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is in second place with 23 percent.
