The president has been accused of pressuring the leader of Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and using a military aid package as leverage.

The president has dismissed a complaint by a whistleblower, saying it's secondhand information and partisan.

Sununu agrees, saying it's all just politics.

"Everyone trying to get at each other," said Sununu, R-New Hampshire. "There is no place for that here in New Hampshire. We do things differently, we get stuff done. We work across the aisle. Those types of Washington circus theatrics [should be left] it for Washington."

Reporter Adam Sullivan: So you do not support the inquiry?
Gov. Chris Sununu: No, of course not.

Investigators are now looking at allegations by a second whistleblower who claims to have firsthand information on the president's phone call.

Fellow GOP Gov. Phil Scott of Vermont made headlines last week when he came out last week as the first Republican governor in the country to support the inquiry.
