New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) said Sunday there’s a “good shot” that neither President Biden or former President Trump will be on the presidential ballot in 2024.
“It’s not going to be that way. Look, I think there’s a good shot that neither of them are actually on that ballot,” Sununu told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.”
He said many Americans would likely support political organization No Labels’s effort to put a bipartisan ticket on the ballot. The governor also said up to 70 percent of Americans will feel “politically homeless” if Biden and Trump are on the ballot in next year’s election.
“I think Trump can very much lose if they winnow it down to one on one,” he added. “I think there’s a lot of issues that are going to come to bear with President Biden over the next year and a lot of opportunity for the Democrats to find another — another candidate. But to the No Labels point, there’s an opportunity there like never before. It would have to be the right candidate. It has to be somebody very energizing, positive.”
Sununu also ruled out a third-party bid for president on Sunday, saying that he wanted to focus on working on making sure “the Republican Party is the best version of itself.” He also opted to not run in the crowded Republican primary.
“And that is it with yesterday’s news of Donald Trump, and a conservative that can fulfill on all the policies that Trump brought forward that we agreed with, but he just couldn’t get done,” he said. “He didn’t get the border done. He didn’t get fiscal discipline done. He didn’t drain the swamp. Those are great ideas. But let’s get a conservative in there that can actually do it.”
