John Sununu, a top adviser to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, suggested Thursday that Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because both men are African-American.
Asked Thursday on CNN about Powell’s endorsement, Sununu said the endorsement might be for reasons other than policy.
“Frankly, when you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or whether he’s got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama,” Sununu said.
Asked what those might be, Sununu pointed to race.
