Haley Campaign Press Release - The Haley and Sununu Media Blitz Continues

December 17, 2023

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Haley and Sununu media blitz continued on the Sunday shows. Nikki Haley and Gov. Chris Sununu joined Jonathan Karl on ABC's This Week and Adam Sexton on WMUR's Close Up.

ABC's This Week


"It's huge. First to have the endorsement of the largest conservative, freedom-loving grassroots organization in the country with Americans for Prosperity, and then go get the endorsement of the 'Live Free or Die' governor. I mean, it doesn't get any better than that. I mean, it's rock-solid. And you know we're focused on, how do we make it a 'Live Free or Die' country? How do we put the people back in charge? And Chris is such a great partner, we've had a great time. We've won so many rooms and you know we're just getting started."


"There are things I agree with the president on. I had a good working relationship with him. There are things I don't agree with. I don't agree with the fact that, yes, we had a good economy while he was there, but he put us $8 trillion in debt that our kids are never going to forgive us for. I don't agree with how he handles national security. He focused on trade with China, but he did nothing about the fentanyl flow. He did nothing about the fact that fentanyl has killed so many of our Americans. I don't think you should praise Hezbollah. I don't think you should criticize Netanyahu, when Israel's down on her knees. I don't think you should congratulate the Chinese Communist Party on their 70th anniversary. I think that when it comes to national security, we don't praise thugs. We let them know where we stand and we let them know there'll be hell to pay if they do anything against us. That's who I am."


"You guys are exhausting. You're exhausting in your obsession with him. The thing is, the normal people aren't obsessed with Trump like you guys are. The normal people care about the fact that they can't afford things. They feel like their freedoms are being taken away. They think government's too big. I know y'all want to talk about every single word he says, and every single Tweet he does. That's exactly why we need a new generational leader. Because people don't want to hear about every word a person says or every Tweet. They want to know how you fought for them that day."

WMUR's Close Up


"It is a two-person race between Nikki Haley and Donald Trump. And even Trump voters I think are realizing, you know, we might have supported him 16 and 20 as we did, but we're results-driven. We want accountability with our elected officials. So inflation is crushing families across this country. Here in New Hampshire, right, the border needs to be secured and you need a president that's going to give a 120% of their time without the distractions, without the chaos... Leadership gets it done every time. Real leadership can get that done. That's what Nikki brings to the table."


"Not healthy at all, not anything that we should have... The problem we have in the country right now is people are constantly trying to label and divide everyone. We're Americans. Can't we get back to that? Can't we start acting like that? We're mothers, sisters, daughters, all of these things that make us united, that's what we should focus on. You don't split people up based on how they look or what religion they are or what gender they are. I mean, that's not America and that's what we have to stop. This national self-loathing that's happened in the country has happened because too many people are dividing us on labels. It's a terrible example for our kids and it's got to stop. We'll put an end to all of that. And she should be called out. There's no good in having any kind of party that separates people on race. That is not the America we live in, and she shouldn't be leading like that."
