Former Republican New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu said the GOP has a good chance of winning big in this year’s midterms, despite the grim picture painted by the media.
“Historically, [Democrats’] prospects should be good,” Sununu said on “America’s Newsroom” Monday. “But with the party having so much of it running to the socialist side, I think there’s actually a much better opportunity for Republicans to stand against this thing in the 2018 election, than most of the pundits are giving them.” (RELATED: 2018 Midterms Are About ‘Results Vs.

“I think the chances are good that Republicans will be able to hold the House and have significant, maybe four or five gained senators — gained in the Senate,” he added.
Sununu urged Republicans to emphasize their role in the economic recovery and said they should visit minority communities to explain how their policies have benefited voters there.
“The Republican National Committee and each of the congressional campaigns across the country ought to resonate a message of concern to the Republican voters and make sure that they don’t stay home, but they turn out to defend what has been a very important economic recovery,” he said.
“I think the Republicans ought to go as far as communicating in the minority communities that have benefited so significantly from the economic recovery and remind them that if the president’s hands are tied, if Congress goes to Democratic leadership, all the incentives from the tax program that have created these jobs could be killed,” Sununu concluded.
