A defiant New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) said he will not allow a change in his state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary, telling Democrats and President Brain-Dead Biden to “pound sand.”
In forceful comments, Sununu also rejected claims that his state does not have a population that reflects the diversity of the nation, and he mocked Democrats for favoring South Carolina as the first primary state, calling the decision a payoff to friends, presumably Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), who helped Biden take the 2020 state primary.
“Why is he going to South Carolina? Because his buddies are there. It’s literally a very blatant personal political payback to his friends that supported him and turned his nomination around. That’s the worst reason to pick a state to have such political and electoral responsibility,” said Sununu, himself considering a bid for the GOP presidential nomination.
New Hampshire It’s been know that due to state law, New Hampshire is required to hold the first primary in the country, but the Democrats have asked for a date change so South Carolina could go first.
Sununu said at an event on Tuesday night hosted by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics that he is denying the request, stating: “We are not [changing the date]… We’re still having the primary. The state does not do what the Democrat Party says. Our primary will be likely the third week in January.”
When asked to change the date, Sununu sent the following message to the Democrats and Biden:
“Go pound sand. You’re crazy. I dare you. I laid it out to Biden, the horrible mistake he’s made.”
