Bedford, N.H. – Governor Chris Sununu endorses fellow Republican Bryant “Corky” Messner’s U.S. Senate run against Democrat Jeanne Shaheen in a new television ad.

The 30-second spot features Sununu and Messner standing side by side, with the Governor talking about Messner’s military background and his business success.

“Corky’s one of us,” says Sununu. “He loves New Hampshire and he won’t put our health care at risk. With Corky, it’s never about big government or politics. It’s just about putting people first. We need him in the U.S. Senate.

Messner adds: “I’ll make sure New Hampshire has the resources to grow our economy, I’ll fight for the 603 in Washington.”

The ad, which represents a six-figure spend, airs statewide on cable, broadcast and digital outlets.
