DGA Statement on Gov. Chris Sununu’s Announcement That He Will Not Run for a Fifth Term

DGA Executive Director Meghan Meehan-Draper released the following statement on Gov. Chris Sununu announcing he will not seek a fifth term as Governor of New Hampshire:

“Gov. Chris Sununu’s announcement that he is not running is a massive RGA recruitment failure that will kick off a nasty, extreme and expensive Republican primary for governor — pitting one MAGA extremist against another. Not only have Granite State voters consistently rejected that type of division and chaos, but after four terms of Sununu’s failures on worsening problems — like the housing crisis, attacks on public education and harmful abortion restrictions — they know it’s time for a change.

“No matter which MAGA candidate becomes the nominee, the DGA is eager to hold them accountable to flip this seat and elect a new Democratic governor who will at long last fix the biggest issues impacting working families.”

In governor’s races across the country in 2022, Republican primary voters consistently nominated dangerous MAGA candidates in crowded GOP primaries, who lost general election races because of their deeply harmful and unpopular positions on banning abortion, undermining democracy and attacking public education. This includes neighboring Massachusetts, where Republican primary voters chose to replace former Gov. Charlie Baker with Geoff Diehl, an election-denying extremist who lost by over 20 points in November.
