Transcript for New Hampshire governor on filling Supreme Court vacancy
Welcome aboard. With the 2020 presidential election now weeks away, the white house has its eyes on new Hampshire. Melania trump visited the granite state last week. Vice president Mike pence set to hold a rally tomorrow as Republicans are hoping to turn the swing state red this November. Here to discuss is New Hampshire governor Chris sununu. Governor, thanks for being with us. I want to begin with the death of justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you tweeted your condolences, how should she be remembered? As a pioneer. As someone who not just broke a glass ceiling, but really set the example of what to do when you get through that glass ceiling, her loss is something that everyone is mourning, and will continue to mourn, so whatever Washington decides to do they have to do it through the constitutional process and I think what America is looking for is, they want to make sure there's some integrity here.

I don't know if pandemic in terms of how he's handled will be the sole factor of this election. I think what America's looking for, what new Hampshire is looking for what happens afterwards, what happens in 2021 and 2022 is what the president will be charged with, getting the jobs back on, making sure our communities are safe, make things can get back to where they were pre-pandemic. President trump has a good record of supporting jobs, but there a lot of other factors that are going to come into play. New Hampshire has been successful of keeping our covid numbers low, keeping the economy strong. Making investments into businesses and individuals. So obviously it's going to be a very contentious election on the national level, but here in new Hampshire we focus on the 603. New Hampshire governor Christopher sununu, thank you for your time.
