Sending Senate signals.

If you need any more proof that Guv Sununu is thinking very, very hard about avenging his brother's loss to Jeanne Shaheen in the '08 US Senate race, look no further than his recent not-so-subtle signal.

On April 10, after Maine Senator Susan Collins issued a statement that the various infrastructure projects at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard--perhaps vulnerable to being raided by the prez to build his border wall--were "currently safe."

The guv--who had been criticized by JS and other Dems for not joining a 16-state lawsuit to protect projects like the shipyard's--quickly sent out a statement of his own, praising the Maine senator's "exemplary leadership" on the whole shipyard megillah.

He added: "I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Sen. Collins for taking action and her dedication to keeping these Portsmouth Naval Shipyard projects moving forward."

Just in case it's getting by you:

* The guv's statement had not one mention of NH's other senator, Congressman Pappas or, last but not least, JS.

* JS has been speaking out in support of the shipyard since before she became guv in 1996, for the record.

* The guv also didn't thank Kelly Ayotte for her past work in support of the shipyard. Just saying.
