Sununu Raises Quarter-Million Since Election

Steve Marchand brought in $45,000.

June 8, 2017, 11 a.m.

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)
