In case you missed it, I wanted to bring to your attention a noteworthy story by James Pindell at WMUR Political Scoop. Pindell highlights “one item that missed the headlines so far this month is how little money U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is raising. . . .”
The dismal reality that Shaheen has “the smallest bank account” of any United States Senator up for re-election in 2014 makes you wonder if she’s starting to lose support from key contributors. What’s more interesting, however, is the fact that she’s the only member of New Hampshire’s federal delegation who has not hosted an open town hall meeting in the state (a point we highlighted a couple months back).
If she’s not interested in meeting with her constituents, how can she be held accountable? Through a spokesperson, Shaheen says they “will begin a new focus on fundraising this quarter.” Will they also “begin a new focus” and start hosting public town hall meetings with the senator?
