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)

A long-running federal investigation into former Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig "is reaching a critical stage, presenting the Justice Department with a decision about whether to charge a prominent Democrat as part of a more aggressive crackdown on illegal foreign lobbying." Federal prosecutors in New York have transferred the case to Washington. ... The investigation centers on whether Mr. Craig should have disclosed work he did in 2012 — while he was a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom — on behalf of the Russia-aligned government of Viktor F. Yanukovych, then the president of Ukraine. The work was steered to Mr. Craig by Paul Manafort."
