SPEAKING TO a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at a GOP rally in front of the State House a few weeks ago, Gov. Chris Sununu blasted key parts of the Democrats’ agenda in the state Legislature and said his veto pen was at the ready. He’s going to need a lot of ink in that pen.

When all is said and done, Sununu could easily beat the record for vetoes since 1997, currently held by former Gov. John Lynch.

Lynch enjoyed Democratic majorities in both House and Senate from 2007 to 2010, but in the Tea Party election of November 2010, Republicans rode a national wave to veto-proof, two-thirds majorities in both chambers.
