Sununu Walks Back Speculation Over Colin Powell Obama Endorsement

Had nothing to do with "anything but the president's policies," the Romney adviser and former NH Governor and GHW Bush adviser said


A top adviser to Mitt Romney is backing away from his suggestion that fellow Republican Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama because both men are black.

Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu issued a statement late Thursday night saying Powell is a friend and he respects the endorsement. He said he doesn't doubt that Powell's backing of Obama is based on "anything but his support of the president's policies."
