Democrats allege conflicts with Sununu, brothers' business
The Associated Press
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire Democrats are alleging Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Sununu may have taken improper votes related to clients represented by his brothers' lobbying and public affairs business.
The Democratic Party on Wednesday pointed to one instance in which Sununu voted on a contract before the executive council dealing with a company that his brothers' business partner was lobbying for. The Democrats called for the firm, Profile Strategy Group, to disclose a full list of its clients.
Sununu's campaign called the claims a "cheap political attack" and denied wrongdoing. Profile Strategy Group partner Jamie Burnett said the group has always been transparent in who it represents.
Sununu is running against Democrat Colin Van Ostern, a fellow councilor.
