Gov. Chris Sununu’s (R) cam­paign “re­por­ted that it raised $262,792 from 220 con­trib­ut­ors since the gov­ernor’s Novem­ber vic­tory. The com­mit­tee re­por­ted it had a sur­plus of $28,381 from the 2016 cycle, res­ult­ing in total re­ceipts of $291,174. Ex­pendit­ures totaled $183,795, leav­ing $107,379 on hand.” (WMUR)

Former Ports­mouth May­or Steve Marchand (D) “re­por­ted rais­ing about $44,979 from 342 con­trib­ut­ors. That’s already more than 40 per­cent of the nearly $102,000 Marchand raised in his en­tire 2016 cam­paign. Ex­pendit­ures totaled $15,893, leav­ing $29,086 on hand.

“He told us the dona­tions have al­lowed him to triple his staff, from one to three. He said he is ex­cited by the fact that of the 342 donors, more than 300 gave to him for the first time. Many, he said, last year con­trib­uted to his two [2016] primary op­pon­ents.” (WMUR)

State Sen. Dan Feltes (D) “said that he and his wife ‘have made zero de­cisions on the 2018 elec­tion cycle, and it’s not any­thing I’m giv­ing at­ten­tion to in the heart of the le­gis­lat­ive ses­sion.’” (WMUR)

ON THE ROAD AGAIN. “Sununu’s of­fice an­nounced Tues­day that on Thursday, he will at­tend an ‘In­frastuc­ture Sum­mit’ at the White House with oth­er gov­ernors and may­ors. … Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump will speak at the sum­mit. On Fri­day and Sat­urday, Sununu will head to Deer Park, Utah for former Re­pub­lic­an pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee Mitt Rom­ney’s an­nu­al ‘E2 Sum­mit’ – a re­treat that at­tracts top GOP of­fi­cials from Wash­ing­ton and across the coun­try.” (WMUR)

SUNU-NO THANKS. “Sununu says New Hamp­shire won’t join a grow­ing group of states that are pledging to up­hold the Par­is cli­mate agree­ment fol­low­ing Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump’s de­cision to back out.” (Con­cord Mon­it­or)

"The Supreme Court on Monday passed up its two opportunities this term to rule on when and whether states violate the Constitution by drawing electoral maps that sharply favor one political party." In a dispute over Maryland's congressional map, the Supreme Court "upheld a district court judge’s decision not to grant a preliminary injunction" blocking the map. In the Wisconsin case Gill v.

ALSO RUSSIA, CYPRUS CONCERNS
Ross Still Has Stake in Chinese Companies
5 hours ago
THE DETAILS

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross failed to keep his promise to divest from his company holdings upon entering government, a Forbes investigation has found. Ross reportedly kept his stakes in companies co-owned by the Chinese government, a firm linked to Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, and a Cyprus bank caught up in the Robert Mueller investigation. Forbes reports that Ross’s family continued to have an interest in these holdings while he dealt with China and Russia in his official role, even while knowing that his family’s fortunes were linked to the countries. Although the arrangements appear to be legal, Forbes says Ross may have broken the law by submitting a sworn statement to officials in November saying he divested of everything he promised he would. His spokesperson said Ross did not lie and has filed amended paperwork.
