(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Reports have come out about New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu intending to endorse GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley during her town hall in Manchester. This could be a key endorsement for Haley who only has six weeks before the start of the primary race to catch up to former President Donald Trump who is leading by a large margin.
Former United Nations ambassador Haley has been surging in the polls in recent weeks, in large part because of her strong performances in the primary debates.
Sununu, who could provide an important endorsement in the early primary state, has not yet announced which candidate he is endorsing in the race but has in the past been a vocal critic of Trump. Thus far, he has campaigned with Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) as well as former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).
In June there were also speculations about Sununu, the four-time governor of New Hampshire, potentially joining the presidential race, however, he decided to not run in the presidential race. Initially, he had stated that he was unsure of who to endorse.
His campaign has not confirmed that Sununu would be endorsing Haley, however, they did note that he would be present during Haley’s rally on Tuesday.
A source close to the governor had told CNN that Sununu was “all in” while ABC News and WMUR came out with reports noting his support for Haley.
Sununu is very popular in his state, and his endorsement could help Haley get the votes of independents in the state.
