Hassan Continues Strong Fundraising and Grassroots Momentum

Over 3,100 individual contributors representing 200 New Hampshire cities and towns

MANCHESTER, NH – Continuing her strong fundraising and grassroots support from across New Hampshire, Democratic candidate for Governor Maggie Hassan announced she has raised $930,000 since the beginning of her campaign. 

Hassan’s strong fundraising caps off weeks of big momentum for the campaign.  Last night she completed her sixth Ice Cream Social in Concord, where she met with more than 100 voters.  She’ll continue her Ice Cream Social Tour in Keene, Dover and Berlin over the next week.  For more information see maggiehassan.com/events.  

In a report to be filed later today, the Hassan campaign will report having raised approximately $930,000, with $100,000 cash on hand.  With 20 days until the primary, the campaign has been advertising on WMUR and cable television over the last weeks and is continuing an aggressive field effort with hundreds of voters coming out to see Hassan at Ice Cream Socials and other events across the state.  Check out photos here.  The campaign continues to fundraise a solid pace.  

“We are honored by the continued strong show of support for Maggie’s campaign,” said Matt Burgess, Hassan’s campaign manager. “People know that we need to continue moving New Hampshire forward and Maggie is the candidate to do it.”

“In Maggie, people see an experienced leader with a record of standing up for what matters to middle class families.  Maggie helped create a job training program that has served nearly 14,000 workers; took on the insurance companies who were discriminating against sick workers; and stood up to the legislature for trying to limit women’s health care.   As Governor, Maggie will move New Hampshire forward and stand firm against the extremists in the legislature who want to take us backward,” Burgess said. 

More than 3,100 people, including people from 200 New Hampshire cities and towns have contributed to the Hassan campaign.  64% percent of Hassan’s donors have given $100 or less.  In this reporting period (June 19-August 20), Hassan raised approximately $239,308. In this reporting period, 1,785 individuals gave an average of $129 and Hassan attracted 1,441 new donors.
