New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, who has criticized Donald Trump in the past, faced questioning from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer after announcing his support for Trump in the 2024 presidential race, even if Trump is convicted on felony charges.

Blitzer challenged Sununu, questioning the credibility of his criticisms of Trump given his endorsement.

Sununu, who previously called for GOP candidates to distance themselves from Trump, defended his stance, dismissing the impact of potential court cases on voters and emphasizing the importance of winning votes in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Wolf Blitzer said, “Governor, I know you’ve suggested that you will vote for Trump even if he is a convicted felon. Nikki Haley has basically said that, as well. She’s refused to rule out joining Trump’s ticket as a vice presidential nominee.”

“Given that, why should anyone take either of your criticisms of Trump seriously?” asked the CNN anchor.

“If even half of this stuff is true, he’s in real trouble,” Sununu replied.

“My point there is this: If you think that these court cases are going to come to some sort of firm resolution before the election and that was the result of any of these, they are going to impact the vote. Everyone always says that, but it never does, right?” he continued.

“The voters are not looking at those issues. They’re not looking at Jan. 6. That is not what the voters are galvanizing behind. They know Bidenonomics, whatever that is, and inflation. These things have crushed middle American families,” explained the governor.

“You got to win the votes here. If you want Trump out, if you want to defeat Trump, it happens in Iowa and New Hampshire,” said Sununu.

“That’s really where it happens, and that’s why we don’t want anyone to kind of sit on the couch and just wait to see what happens in the court. I think that’s more of the driver than anything else,” he concluded.
