Sununu tells NBC’s Chuck Todd he’s “in a bubble” as he grapples with voters’ priorities ahead of the midterms.
New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu accused NBC News anchor Chuck Todd of being “in a bubble” during a heated exchange on Sunday’s installment of “Meet the Press.”
Todd grilled Sununu for supporting GOP Senate candidate Don Bolduc, whom the governor previously opposed during the New Hampshire primary but has since rallied to unseat incumbent Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan.
“Why do you support an election denier and think the issue of inflation is enough to rationalize support for someone who thinks school buses of voters will show up in New Hampshire?” Todd asked.
“Let me tell you – you’re in a bubble, man,” Sununu replied. “I love you, Chuck, but you’re in a bubble if you think anybody’s talking about what happened in 2020 or talking about Mar-a-Lago and all that. I know the press likes to talk. People talk about what happens in their pockets every day when they go to buy groceries or fill up with gas.

“I have this governor, I understand that,” Todd chimed in. “Should it be? Do you think it should be prioritized over electoral denialism?”
“Should I be? Of course!” Sununu exclaimed. “This is hitting people! They’re having trouble paying their mortgage, they’re having trouble making car payments because of the bad politics out of Washington. Should it be? Look, the beauty of the American system is that every voter has the right and almost the right. responsibility to be selfish with your vote, to vote for what’s best for your family, to have better choice for schools, better economic opportunity. And that’s exactly what happens in a week , that’s why Hassan is going to be fired. , A lot of these Democrats are going to be fired, because frankly, people who think that the average voter is worried about 2020, the average voter, it’s a serious problem of course, but it’s not what people will vote for next week.

“And that kind of surprised me throughout this campaign season, the fact that Democrats keep pushing this stuff and talking about things that aren’t really what the voters want to hear or aren’t really connected to the challenges empathy that the average voter sees every day,” added Sununu.
This is not the first time that Sununu has worried about his support for Bolduc, who previously did not accept the results of the 2020 presidential electiona stance he has softened since becoming the GOP nominee in the New Hampshire Senate race.

“You hugged recently [Bolduc] Although during the primaries, you called him a quote “conspiracy theory extremist who is not a serious candidate”, “. CNN’s Jake Tapper he told Sununu earlier this month. “But now you’re telling the Republicans in your state to vote for him — this guy isn’t all there!”
“Look, I’ve supported the Republican ticket up and down because you know who’s not here? Some of my Democratic congressional delegation,” Sununu replied. “I’m literally not here! It’s literally been years – [incumbent Sen. Maggie] Hassan literally spent years out of state.”
“You know I’m not talking about his physical presence. He was a staunch election liar,” Tapper said. “Before he won the primary, he was an electoral liar, then he changed his position dramatically once he won the nomination and realized, ‘Oh my God, there are a lot of sane people in New Hampshire that I to appeal.”

“Gov. Sununu, you are a healthy Republican at a time when many people are looking for healthy Republicans. Are you hurting the cause of healthy Republicans when you embrace people like that?” Tapper hammered the governor who doubled down on his opposition to Democrats.
