Sununu: I've asked White House for voting fraud proof

Written by Lisa

New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu said Friday he has asked the White House for proof in the wake of Trump administration claims of massive voting fraud in his state.

“We’ve talked a little bit, and I basically said, ‘Look, if there’s real evidence out there that you have that we don’t have, we’re happy to talk about that and take a look at it,’ ” he said, reiterating that he has seen no evidence of illegal voting.

The Trump administration has claimed that “thousands” of voters from Massachusetts were bused into the state, which Trump has said cost himself and GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte the election. The claim was dismissed by members of both parties after White House policy adviser Stephen Miller told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that it was a “widely known” and “very serious” problem.

Sununu has called for the tightening of voting laws in the state, however, and has spoken against the state’s same-day voter registration policies.

“In New Hampshire, though, you have to understand we have some very loose voting laws,” he said. “It’s about redefining what is a resident, what is domicile, making sure our election laws are as tight as any other state out there.”
