Donald Trump's New Hampshire campaign is adding staff, but the GOP nominee's local campaign still has far fewer paid employees than that of Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Trump-Pence campaign has named three new hires, including Mark Sanborn, who will serve as the GOP ticket's state political director. Sanborn has experience in New Hampshire politics, including stints working for U.S. Senator Bob Smith and Congressman Charlie Bass.

The Trump campaign has also added a local coalitions director and a communications director.

According to the campaign, Trump has 29 paid staff working in New Hampshire. That's less than a third the number now employed by Hillary Clinton's campaign.
