New Hampshire Gov. Sununu Cancels Outdoor Inauguration Ceremony Over Armed Protesters

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu announced a change of plans for his January 7 inauguration ceremony, citing public safety concerns over armed protesters.

“For weeks, armed protesters have increasingly become more aggressive, targeting my family, protesting outside my private residence, and trespassing on my property — an outdoor public ceremony simply brings too much risk,” Sununu’s statement read. “We do not make this decision lightly but it is the right thing to do.”
