Former New Hampshire Governor on John Lynch; “He’s the Worst Ever”
Former governor of New Hampshire John Sununu, (not to be confused with his son John Sununu who just lost his senate seat to Jeanne Shaheen), had some harsh words to say about our current governor. During a Seacoast Federated Republican Women meeting he called John Lynch the worst governor that New Hampshire has ever had.
When asked to clarify his comments later instead of backing down he re-enforced what he said earlier.
Later, explaining his opinion to a reporter, Sununu cited a $250 million state budget deficit; what he called the erosion of family values in the last legislative session; and Lynch’s failure to persuade lawmakers from his own party to vote for his constitutional amendment on education.
It is about time that the GOP starts fighting back in this state, we have let the Democrats continue to make gains and continue to push their nanny state legislation and their tax and spend policies and New Hampshire is on the brink of financial collapse.
He also claimed that John Lynch has been able to keep his approval ratings up because the GOP hasn’t run a serious challenger against him. This is something that I touched on in this post when I asked the question, how does Governor Sununu sound? I was speculating that the former governor’s son should run for governor in two years because he will have the name recognition and the funds to compete, something the last two Republican candidates did not have. Especially if John Lynch does as I think he will, run for senate in two years.
It now appears as though I am not the only one out here with that thought, speculation is growing that John Sununu will run for governor in two years. There were also rumors that he may be up for the chairmanship of the national RNC although it now appears that Michael Steele will be getting the chairmanship. It’s just as well, as proud as I would be to see a New Hampshirite rise to national prominence in that role I would just assume keep him here to straighten out our state first.
