NEW: McConnell’s Top Ally Publicly Fawns Over Sununu, Begs Him to Run for Senate
Can You Hear the Desperation?
Mitch McConnell and his closest cronies are literally going everywhere to get Chris Sununu to run.
After publicly begging Sununu to run for U.S. Senate at CPAC and gushing about him to Politico, McConnell’s top allies are now taking their public fawning and shameless begging to the world of audio.
In an interview on Ruthless Podcast today, Senator Rick Scott - the Chair of Mitch McConnell’s campaign arm - repeatedly told host Jeff Holmes that Chris Sununu is a “good guy” and a “really good guy” — laying the praise for Sununu on thick while saying nothing about Granite Staters’ priorities.
