CONCORD, NH - The New Hampshire House and Senate Democratic political committees announce record fundraising totals for the first 2018 general election filing.
The Committee to Elect House Democrats raised $480,144 and has $147,150.92 on hand. These totals exceed the record breaking 2016 totals at this point in the cycle of $335,004 raised and $107,288 on hand.
The Senate Democratic Caucus has raised $812,015. This total exceeds the record breaking 2016 totals of $770,246 raised. The record breaking fundraising is already being put to use as the Caucus has already spent $653,994 and has $158,021 cash on hand going into the final 3 weeks of the campaign.
Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy issued the following statement:
“There is tremendous support for Democrats up and down the ballot this year. Granite Staters are feeling the effects of elections, and don’t like what they are seeing from our current majority. Our fundraising success proves that our message and incredible candidates are connecting with, and inspiring, Granite Staters. Voters want a State Senate that protects public education, passes paid family and medical leave, and fights for an economy that works for everyone. They know that the only way for that to all happen is to elect a Democratic majority in the Senate.”
House Democratic Leader Rep. Steve Shurtleff issued the following statement:
“These incredible fundraising numbers clearly demonstrate that Granite Staters are sick of a majority in power that does nothing to represent their interests. This election is about fully funding public schools, implementing paid family and medical leave, and creating an economy that supports New Hampshire families not out of state corporate interests. Granite Staters are ready for a Democratic House majority and these fundraising numbers make it possible.”
