New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu made an interesting prediction on Friday when he said that former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley would win the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential ticket and go on to represent the party in next year’s national election.

For Sununu, “the connection” Haley has with voters put her above other four candidates vying for the party’s nomination, including former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“When she’s in New Hampshire, and she’s doing the town halls and all that, she’s not just telling you where she is. She does that. But she’s allowing folks to ask questions. She’s earning trust. And that’s why her numbers were soaring before I even got involved because folks are galvanizing around that,” Sununu stated.

The New Hampshire governor also brought up the international experience Haley gained during her time as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from January 2017 to December 2018.

Suggesting that she can better handle issues on foreign affairs, Sununu said, “What she did on the U.N., understanding that these international issues are more important today than ever before, and having that type of expertise. And frankly, it’s a little bit of the ‘live free or die’ thing, right? We want someone who truly believes in not big government solutions, and there’s a little bit of that with the other two.”

Sununu further reiterated his support for Haley, stating, “We’re 110 percent behind Nikki. I think she’s going to be the nominee.”

He also expressed a belief that “New Hampshire is going to be the reset point” that will make Republican voters realize that Trump is not the only option.

“Most of the country right now is saying, well, we think Trump is probably going to be the guy, so we’ll just vote for him. They think it’s a fait accompli. It’s not. And as soon as they know that, I think people are going to say hey, wait, we have a binary choice,” he added.

Sununu’s remarks come three days after he publicly endorsed Haley’s presidential bid while joining her at a campaign town hall event in Manchester.

“This is an opportunity for New Hampshire to lead this country, for New Hampshire to say we’re not looking in the rearview mirror anymore,” he declared, highlighting his shift in support from Trump, whose bids he backed in 2016 and 2020.

In acceptance of the endorsement, Haley stated, “It doesn’t get any better than this. To go and get endorsed by the ‘Live Free or Die’ governor is about as rock-solid of an endorsement as we could hope for.”
