    New Hampshire’s Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors. Medical and mental health professionals — including the American Medical Association — say the practice to change a minor's sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective and can cause psychological harm to LGBTQ youth. “Discrimination — in any form — is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die Spirit,” Sununu said in a statement, as reported by WMUR. “If we really want to be the ‘Live Free or Die’ state, we must ensure that...

    Since he became governor, Chris Sununu has rarely clashed with President Donald Trump, supporting the travel ban on citizens from several mostly Muslim nations and quick to play up visits he has made the White House. But when Trump’s immigration crackdown reached the state’s tiny Indonesian community this year, Sununu wrote a letter to his fellow Republican in October in which he said he was “respectfully requesting your administration reconsider its decision to deport these individuals” and urging it consider a “resolution that would allow them to remain in the United States.” Sununu insisted the case of the Indonesians was...

    John Sununu blasted the media on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday over their coverage of the investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. Anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Sununu, “Is there anything about the Russian — investigation connected to the Trump campaign that troubles you?” The former governor replied by going on the offensive against the media: “Yeah, but the reporting that’s taking place and the exaggeration of the veniality…look, it’s now seven months since the election; and to this day, no one has cited a single piece of evidence.” The two then sparred over the recent report...

    The New Hampshire legislature has passed permitless "Constitutional carry" both of the last two years. Both times the bill was vetoed by Democrat governor Maggie Hassan.  Now, early in the session, the New Hampshire Senate has passed SB 12-FN.  It had five Senators as sponsors, Senators Abard, Birdsell, Carson, Daniels, and Gannon.  It passed the Senate with a healthy 13 to 10 margin, defeating two attempts at amendment, on January 19, 2017. In 2016, the New Hampshire House passed the Constitutional carry bill 206 to 146. New Hampshire is bordered on the East by Maine and on the West...

    Endorsements may not move the needle with most voters, even when A-listers like Ted Cruz make them. When it comes to John H. Sununu, former governor of New Hampshire and one-time RNC chair, it would normally matter less, except for his ties to the Bush family, who haven’t exactly tripped over themselves to support Donald Trump. Like Cruz, Sununu didn’t hold back his criticism of the Republican nominee, at least until today. The morning after the debate, the Trump campaign released this statement from George H. W. Bush’s former chief of staff: “Donald Trump is the only candidate in this...

    So this is the latest Republican establishment (GOPe) talking point… Former Governor John Sununu, a Jeb Bush supporter, told America’s Newsroom if Donald Trump only wins New Hampshire by 12 points he loses–Keep telling yourself that, John. “I think Trump will win. I don’t think he’ll win by as much as he thinks he is and as much as the polls say. If he doesn’t win by 12 points I think the perception will be that he lost.’

    Whom Donald Trump has insinuated is unintelligent — fired back on Monday, calling the billionaire developer and Republican presidential front-runner a "lefty liberal" who's "thin-skinned" and "all mouth." In an explosive interview with Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg, the former New Hampshire governor who also served as chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush, lashed out at Trump's nose-thumbing barb which was reported by the Wall Street Journal. "Can you believe this guy? He was fired like a dog and he doesn't even realize it," Trump said of Sununu. "That's funny coming from a guy who's got four major billion-dollar...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell — who split with the Republican Party to endorse President Barack Obama two times — said Sunday there are some clearly racial elements within the GOP. “There’s also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities.” While not mentioning former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin or former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu by name, Powell referenced past comments from each about Obama as evidence of...

    Juan Williams: He's (Mitt Romney) had a rough couple days here. John Sununu: Yeah, he had a rough week. Obama gets endorsed by Hugo Chavez and Mitt Romney gets endorsed by Lech Walesa. That's a rough week, isn't it? Let's get right down to it. Let's start up with the little dust up in England. Can you imagine the scandalous exhibitionist newspapers in England criticizing an American presidential candidate for saying exactly the same thing that those same newspapers had in their own headlines the week before? Come on. The American press hand-in-hand with the British press is making something...

    Sununu's full quote: "He has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn't be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago."

    Gov. Sununu may be a RINO to some and a moderate to others, but dang, he’s awesome as a Romney surrogate. And he took it to Juan Williams continuously tonight, even telling him to not let his blind loyalty to this president make him sound foolish. It was awesome. Below is part one and part two, and I highly recommend watching both of them because Sununu never lets up and keeps handing Juan Williams his backside. Great TV! http://www.therightscoop.com/sununu-to-juan-williams-dont-let-your-blind-loyalty-to-obama-make-you-sound-foolish/

    Soledad O'Brien and CNN beclowning themselves... is hardly news. What's news..., is Romney surrogate John Sununu aggressively pushing back against [them] for carrying/enabling Obama campaign's talking points. It's a thing of beauty... If this is going to be Team Romney's approach to the hostile media, it will pay big dividends.... ...Sununu hits a rhetorical grand slam by controlling the conversation and methodically taking it to where it needs to go: economic policy.Sununu also manages to do this without ever appearing angry or defensive. He's aggressive, respectful, on offense (and therefore not complaining), and perfectly prepared for what's coming. Bringing...

    John Sununu pretty much threatened Sheldon Adelson, who is funding a pro-Newt SuperPAC running ads about Bain, with retribution: This went under the radar in the crush of primary day activity yesterday, but former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu — who has been among Mitt Romney’s most outspoken surrogates in recent weeks — lambasted casino magnate Sheldon Adelson in an appearance on Fox News for giving $5 million to the super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich. Referring to Adelson as “not so bright” as he led into the discussion, Sununu noted that Adelson tends to woo the financial community to invest...
