On NH Today, Senator Hassan Won't Offer Thoughts on Sununu Governorship


Negotiations for a $2 trillion infrastructure bill between Republican and Democratic lawmakers have been on going. Senator Hassan, who has been one of the negotiators, believes that they are close to making a deal, but there are a few serious philosophical differences which need to be ironed out.

In an interview with Chris Ryan, Senator Maggie Hassan discusses the current status of the COVID pandemic; addresses concerns about inflation; avoids evaluating Chris Sununu’s job as governor; and gives a status report on the negotiations for a bipartisan $2 trillion infrastructure bill.

Senator Hassan didn’t predict whether restrictions and mandates would be needed in the fall. She encourages those who have, as of yet, not been vaccinated to get answers to whatever doubts and questions that they may have; and, hopefully, they will realize that the shots are safe, effective, and worthwhile.

Balancing the need for childcare programs and other spending which is needed to jumpstart the economy after the pandemic and rising costs is a concern of the Senator. In her opinion, the increased costs are temporary and due to COVID related supply chain issues.

When Senator Hassan was asked to evaluate the job of her potential opponent in 2022, Chris Sununu, the Senator chose to discuss the concerns of Granite Staters. Senator Hassan states that she and the rest of the New Hampshire delegation will continue to work effectively with Governor Sununu. The Senator will delay commenting until they actually are opponents.
