A new Granite State poll in New Hampshire finds Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) is in statistical ties with four possible Republican challengers.
Sen. Maggie Hassan’s (D-NH) reelection campaign announced a $13 million reservation in fall airtime ahead of November’s midterm elections, The Hill reports.
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) told the Washington Examiner that was on the verge of running for Senate and but then he talked it over with Republican senators.
Said Sununu: “They were all, for the most part, content with the speed at which they weren’t doing anything. It was very clear that we just have to hold the line for two years. OK, so I’m just going to be a roadblock for two years. That’s not what I do.”
Retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc (R) called Gov. Chris Sununu (R) a “Chinese Communist sympathizer” whose family business “supports terrorism,” and claimed he drove the governor from the U.S. Senate race, New Hampshire Journal reports.
Said Bolduc: “I derailed Gov. Sununu from running for Senate. Let’s face it — the most powerful political family in New Hampshire made a decision not to run against a political outsider for the United States Senate.”
He added: “We ran a Sun Tzu-like campaign that brought to the forefront all of his flaws for serving at the national level as a U.S. Senator. And he surprised all of his supporters because in the 11th hour, he looked at the polls and there was no guarantee could beat Bolduc. And he can’t afford a loss based on his future ambitions in the political arena.”
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) announced that he will not run for U.S. Senate against Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) in 2022 and will instead seek re-election, WMUR reports.

A new University of New Hampshire poll finds Chris Sununu (R) and Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) locked in a tight race, 49% to 48% — if Sununu decides to run.
Washington Examiner: “Sununu, the GOP’s coveted 46-year-old recruit, is undecided about mounting a 2022 bid after three successful gubernatorial campaigns in just four years (New Hampshire still limits its chief executive to two-year terms.)”
“But gradually, Sununu is dipping his toes into the national political waters and feeling out a race against Hassan, suggesting however much the governor might legitimately ‘hate’ Washington, waging the potentially decisive battle for control of an evenly divided Senate intrigues him.”
The New Hampshire Democratic Party launched a messaging campaign regarding Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) wooing of Gov. Chris Sununu (R) to run for the U.S. Senate in 2022, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.
Politico: “Sununu has the potential to be the most important Republican recruit of the cycle. He’s an incumbent three-term governor fresh off a 30-plus-point victory last year in a state Biden carried with relative ease. And he’s political royalty in the Granite State, the son of a former governor and White House chief of staff as well as the brother of a former senator.”
