(RepublicanNews.org) – Chris Christie was dealt an unexpected blow when New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu did not support the former New Jersey Governor for the Republican presidential nomination.
For weeks, Sununu had said that the race for his support would be between Haley, Ron DeSantis of Florida, and Christie, with whom he has known for more than ten years. In New Hampshire, where she is now polling second, Haley has steadily climbed the ranks in recent months, behind only former president Donald Trump. In the Granite State polls, Christie is in third position, a few points behind Haley.
Christie is rehashing his approach from his failed 2016 Republican presidential campaign when he put all his eggs in the New Hampshire basket.
Those challenging Nikki Haley for the Republican presidential candidacy have been relentlessly attacking her lately, claiming that she secretly wants to be the running mate of former president Donald Trump if he wins the party ticket.
Chris Christie and Ron DeSantis, two of her rivals in the presidential race, have said that South Carolina’s former governor doesn’t want to be president and has been transparently very quiet about her criticism of Trump.
After fielding questions from the enthusiastic audience at a crowded American Legion post in Londonderry, New Hampshire, for almost 1.5 hours, Christie chatted with the media.
Starting with her “word salad” responses on the contentious topic of abortion, he relentlessly attacked Haley throughout the town hall.
Although DeSantis was disappointed by Sununu’s Haley support, he focuses on Iowa, where the GOP nomination calendar begins with the caucuses on January 15th.
Haley and Christie hope to have a good showing in New Hampshire.
Christie maintains that Sununu’s support for Nikki Haley doesn’t alter his approach to his campaign. He is rehashing his approach from his failed 2016 Republican presidential campaign when he put all his eggs in the New Hampshire basket.
