New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu says he has decided to not seek the GOP nomination for the 2024 presidential race after hinting for months that he would enter the race.

"We’ve taken the last six months to really kind of look at things, where everything is. And I’ve made the decision not to run for president on the Republican ticket in 2024," Sununu said Monday on CNN

The New Hampshire governor has hinted over the past several months that he would enter the 2024 presidential race.

Sununu said part of his decision to not run was due to the growing number of GOP primary candidates, as 10 major Republican candidates are expected to be in the race by the end of this week after former Vice President Mike Pence, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum formally kick off their campaigns.

"I don't mind who gets into the field, but given where the polls are right now, every candidate needs to understand the responsibility of getting out and getting out quickly if it’s not working," he also said.

Sununu voted for former President Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020, and while he has since gone on to criticize Trump, he said he will still support whoever secures the Republican nomination.
