( – On Monday, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu (Republican) announced that he would not be joining the 2024 presidential race and that, in his opinion, he would be more useful in working to help the GOP improve in other areas.

During a sit-down interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, he revealed his decision not to join the race in 2024. He proceeded to point out that currently, the 2024 primary field was “very large” and that former president Donald Trump was performing in the polls much better than people expected. He added that when he considers where his voice would best serve the Republican party, he is “ultimately focusing” on creating more opportunities for the party and the entire country.

Sununu had previously been considering placing a bid in the Republican presidential primary, however, after failing to win any traction in the primary polls he has decided not to join the race. He is not the only suspected presidential candidate to have passed on the opportunity. In fact, he joins former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan who also announced earlier this year that he would not be joining the presidential race.

The latest addition to the growing GOP primary was former VP Mike Pence who filed to join the race on Monday. When asked about the growing GOP field, Sununu stated that every candidate needed to understand that if it was “not working” for them it would be up to them to get out of the race fast, arguing that those polling in the single digits by Christmas should leave the race.
