Thursday on Fox News Radio’s “The John Gibson Show,” former chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush and former Governor of New Hampshire John Sununu said the point of the Republican primary is to get the best candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton to stop the third term of President Barack Obama.
Once the primary is over, Sununu said it’s “stupid” for Republican voters to not back whomever wins the primary, with one exception, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
Sununu said while he is tired of “stupid conservatives giving Democrats the election,” After Paul’s comments blaming Republican hawks for creating ISIS this week he now believes Paul’s national security positions are too extreme “isolationist,” and “to the left of Barack Obama.”
He added, “Frankly, I can not imagine Rand Paul as commander in chief.”
