Governor Chris Sununu hasn't always gotten his way with the Republcian-controlled Legislature. Its override of a biomass energy veto bill this week is but the freshest example. But Sununu told fellow Republicans at the party's Unity Breakfast Thursday that their work in Concord -- to cut taxes, reduce regulation, foster educational choice, and boost business development -- will help them win in November.

"More opportunity and freedom for our citizens," Sununu said. "That's what we've achieved, not for ourselves but for the 1.3 million people we collectively represent. They are all voters. I laugh at the Democrats when they say, "we don't take corporate money," because no business would ever support you. Are you nuts? Are you kidding me?"

Sununu insisted his party has "huge momentum." But he also told the crowd that high turnout during the primary election this week highlighted the need for Republicans to pursue votes from outside the party's core, including from Democrats.
