The governor of New Hampshire predicted President Trump would carry his state in 2020 after a narrow loss there to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“When [voters] go into that ballot box, that’s why they are going to be pulling the lever, and Donald Trump is going to win New Hampshire — because we kind of match our pro-business message with his economic success,” Gov. Chris Sununu told Fox News on Monday.
Clinton won the Granite State by less than 1 percentage point three years ago, with the bulk of Trump’s support coming in from the more rural northern and eastern sections of the state.
Sununu, a Republican, was elected in 2017 and has shown confidence in Trump’s popularity in the state he leads. As the Republican Party, in several states, canceled primaries in the run-up to this year’s election, Sununu balked at the idea.
