New Hampshire: NAM Offers Late Help for Struggling Sununu

Posted October 27, 2008 at 6:46pm

The National Association of Manufacturers made an under-the-wire endorsement of Sen. John Sununu (R) on Monday. Sununu is considered to be the underdog this cycle in a rematch against his 2002 opponent, former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen (D).

In a statement from his campaign, Sununu welcomed the group’s backing.

“In the Senate, I have worked to create a pro-growth, pro-manufacturing environment by cosponsoring and passing legislation for renewable energy tax credits, advocating for small businesses to band together to purchase health care and led the effort to pass the internet access tax ban,” he said.

Public polls have given Shaheen the edge in the contest, though Republicans are confident that Sununu can eke out a win next week.
