For months, Republican presidential contenders have vied for Governor Chris Sununu’s endorsement. Now, sources reveal that Sununu has reached a decision. He is set to throw his support behind former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and will formally announce this endorsement on Tuesday night during a town hall event for Haley in Manchester.

Having opted not to pursue a presidential run himself, Sununu dedicated the summer and fall to traversing the campaign trail with various candidates. His objective was to identify the candidate he believed would be most strategically positioned to challenge former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary.

Expressing skepticism about Trump’s chances of winning next year, Sununu is determined to see the Republican Party move beyond the Trump era.
