Read More

                                       In his State of the State speech this morning, Governor Sununu consistently manipulated his record to try to create the appearance he’s doing anything other than looking out for his wealthy family, friends, donors, and corporations while in office. Here’s a list of his “accomplishments” so far in office, and the reality behind them. Sununu’s budget When Sununu congratulated himself for . . .

Sununu Silence

Despite his supposed “zero tolerance” policy on sexual misconduct, Governor Sununu has been silent about the members of his own party who have been accused of serial sexual assault and harassment. The New Hampshire Democratic Party has called on Sununu to condemn the behavior of three Republican elected officials with ties to the New Hampshire governor, but Sununu has deflected, ignored or refused all requests.   DONALD TRUMP On October 12th, 2016, two women accused then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual . . .

Sununu tries his “doublespeak” routine on paid family leave

Read More

When asked in a Seacoast Online interview whether he supports paid family leave, a bipartisan measure that passed the New Hampshire House yesterday, Governor Chris Sununu refused to level with the people of New Hampshire and employed his favorite “doublespeak” routine…again. Instead of outlining a firm position on the issue, he said he “loves the concept” but thinks it’s “unsustainable” and too “expensive.” This is Governor Sununu’s favorite tactic to try to mislead voters and avoid taking a position on critical issues for New Hampshire. Yesterday was far from . . .

NH’s own Betsy DeVos, Edelblut is transforming NHDOE into a political weapon

When Governor Sununu appointed his former political rival Frank Edelblut as Education Commissioner, many in the state, from parents to teachers to the New Hampshire Board of Education, were left wondering what exactly Sununu’s first agency pick brought to the table. Edelblut had homeschooled his children rather than sending them to any public school in the state, he had never been involved in the issue of education, and his views on education steered away from growing and empowering public schools. In his . . .

Sununu continues pushing unpopular GOP tax plan to benefit corporate special interests

Read More

In a letter written last Friday, Governor Sununu set himself up to reverse course on the GOP tax plan by falsely blaming the Congressional delegation for the bill’s worst Republican provisions. Sununu has been a strong supporter of the GOP tax plan from day one in spite of the fact that the proposal is one of the most partisan, unpopular bills in modern American history. Granite Staters will see right through Sununu’s latest effort to muddy the waters and will hold him accountable for his support of this . . .

Sununu tells a whopper on GOP tax plan

Read More

Today, after his closed-door meeting with Vice President Pence, Sununu tried to grossly mislead the people of New Hampshire about the fact that hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters will be hurt by the GOP tax bill.  Sununu said of the GOP tax bill: “At the end of the day, this will be a net positive for the majority of low and middle income families in this country.” But here are the facts: Reality Check: This bill is projected to raise taxes on households earning less than $75,000 . . .

Welcome to Sununu Reality Check

Read More

Chris Sununu has a bit of trouble with reality. As governor, he should be fighting for New Hampshire residents, businesses, and economy, but since assuming the job in January, he has been more interested in catering to corporate special interests and his national party backers—including President Trump. Sununu cloaks his actions in a healthy dose of bipartisan doublespeak. But we won’t let him continue his ‘aw shucks’ act anymore. That’s why the New Hampshire Democratic Party is launching, “Sununu Reality . . .
