NH ROUNDUP: Sununu’s Mess

NH ROUNDUP: Sununu’s Mess 

Union Leader Editorial: ‘Sununu is too young to be this two faced’ 

After Chris Sununu’s flip-flop vote on Planned Parenthood yesterday, the GOP gubernatorial candidate is under attack from all sides. 

Sununu’s Republican opponents have blasted him for political pandering and abandoning the Republican Party platform, while Democrats have hit him for voting to block access to health care for 12,000 New Hampshire women and men last year. 

Check out a roundup of the mess Sununu has made for himself below:
