“all [Trump] I am interested in securing the nomination,” Sununu asserted.

“He has the right to pick,” Tarlov replied.

Sununu said that's not the case with Trump and that Nikki Haley is still running against him.

“Nikki Haley. Nikki Haley 2024. I mean it,” Sununu said, tapping the table.

The four-term governor endorsed Haley in New Hampshire a month before the nation's first primary, but lost to Haley when Trump received more than 50% of the vote.

“Let's face reality,” Maher said. “First of all, Nikki Haley isn't going to be the nominee, Trump is going to be the nominee. Let's stop arguing about stupid things.”

Sununu complained that Maher disrespected voters, many of whom had not yet cast their votes.

“Voters matter, and they are overwhelmingly voting for Trump,” Maher responded.

After Sununu continued to resist, Maher said, “I'll bet it 100-1.” The governor did not say whether he would accept the bet.

“I'm not saying it's not a big mountain to climb,” Sununu acknowledged.
