Democrat Maggie Hassan has raised more money than her Republican rival to succeed retiring New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch.
Hassan reported raising $261,000 over the past two weeks compared to the $183,000 raised by Ovide Lamontagne. Hassan has brought in $731,000 since the September primary while Lamontagne has raised $485,000.
Hassan entered the general election cycle with less money than Lamontagne — $16,000 to his $258,000 — but has not only closed the gap but has slightly surpassed him in fundraising. Each has raised about $1.8 million for their primary and general election campaigns.
The report filed with the Secretary of State on Wednesday shows that Lamontagne has more cash on hand. He has $179,000 available compared to almost $66,000 Hassan reported in cash available.
