Gov. Chris Sununu said Monday he is unaware of widespread voter fraud in the Granite State, but he said he wants to work with President Donald Trump’s administration to “learn of any evidence they may have.” The governor issued a statement to WMUR.com after several days of a media and social media firestorm over Trump’s assertion – and the assertion of Trump’s senior White House policy adviser – that thousands of people from Massachusetts were bused into New Hampshire to vote illegally in the November election. Neither produced evidence of their claims, and a Federal Election Commission member called on Trump to produce evidence. See WMUR.com’s recent reports here, here and here.
In his statement, Sununu said: “As I’ve said in the past, I’m not aware of any widespread voter fraud in New Hampshire. However, the (Trump) administration has made some strong assertions to the contrary. I take their concerns seriously and look forward to working closely with them to learn of any evidence they may have and help address any concerns that may develop from there.”
Also Monday, Sununu told WMUR political director Josh McElveen in an interview: “I do not believe we have widespread voter fraud here in New Hampshire. However, there have been some assertions by the president and his administration to the contrary, and we’ll continue to discuss these issues with the administration and explore any evidence they may have.”
