Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would win New Hampshire’s 2024 Republican primary ‘without a doubt’ if it were held today, the state’s GOP governor said on Sunday.
Gov. Chris Sununu said the Sunshine State Republican is ‘obviously’ running for president, despite not having formally declared his intention to do so – a limbo that’s left former President Donald Trump furious.
But Sununu said the former president would ‘probably’ not see the success that his 2016 campaign did, when he bested a crowded field of more experienced Republicans to clinch the nomination.
‘One of the reasons he became the Republican nominee in 2016 is because he won the first primary state,’ Sununu told CNN‘s State of the Union in reference to New Hampshire.
