The 1st quarter financial disclosure reports are due at the beginning of next week, and already many of the office holders and candidates are releasing their numbers. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) did so, and her totals were surprising. Potentially facing a tough re-election fight with Gov. Chris Sununu (R), Sen. Shaheen has finally kicked her fundraising operation into gear. In the first quarter, the campaign obtained over $1.4 million, but her closing cash-on-hand figure was a surprisingly low $1.5 million.
If the New Hampshire race becomes targeted, money for either side will not be an issue, so failing to raise substantial early funding is not the problem that it might have once been.
