Concord, NH – Craig Brown, campaign manager for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Molly Kelly, released the following statement after she reported raising $345,000 to Sununu’s $110,000 since the September primary:

“Molly is receiving overwhelming support from Granite Staters who know New Hampshire needs a new Governor who will put their interests first, and that’s Molly Kelly. Molly has not accepted a penny of corporate money since day one of this campaign and she still outraised Chris Sununu, who relies on corporate money to pay for his campaigns and puts their interests first. With less than three weeks to go, Granite Staters are making clear they want a change in the Corner Office and an advocate like Molly who will work for them.”



  • Sununu turned in the worst fundraising period of any incumbent governor in a competitive campaign going back to at least 2002, the last year for which records are available online.

  • Kelly has received contributions from nearly three times as many donors (4,109 to 1,516).

  • Kelly had more New Hampshire donors in the last week (531) than Sununu had during the entire month (318).

  • Kelly has more total donors the last month (1,599) than Sununu has during the entire campaign (1,516); and he’s been raising an entire year longer than Kelly.

  • Out-of-state donors, corporations, and PACs make up more than half of Sununu’s contributions ($57,901 of $110,625) over the last month.  


  • The Trump Administration is fully behind Sununu, as Sununu received another $1,000 (the maximum allowed) from Mike Pence in this period, on top of $5,000 Pence contributed  earlier this year.

  • Kelly received a record-setting number of votes in the primary election last month as Democrats set a new high-water mark for turnout.
