Gov.-elect Sununu calls for unity in GOP caucus

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov.-elect Chris Sununu is urging House Republicans to be united in the upcoming session.

Sununu remarks are kicking off a caucus meeting where Republicans will choose their nominee for House Speaker. Four candidates are in the running.

The upcoming session marks the first time Republicans have controlled the House, Senate and governorship since 2004. Sununu says Republicans must show New Hampshire voters they can govern, adding "we have one shot to get it right."

His call for unity could be a look back to the GOP speaker's race two years ago. Although the Republican caucus chose Rep. Bill O'Brien, rival Shawn Jasper won the speakership with help from Democrats.
