Shaheen takes in $1.9 million for Q2
CONCORD (AP) – U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., raised more than $1.9 million in the latest fundraising quarter as she seeks a third term in the U.S. Senate.
Shaheen’s campaign says her second-quarter haul is more than any other New Hampshire candidate raised for that time period, exceeding the $1.49 million Republican Kelly Ayotte collected in the second quarter of 2015.
Her campaign said the money came from more than 11,700 individuals. Ninety-five percent of the donations were less than $250. She ended the quarter with $2.8 million cash on hand.
Shaheen’s seat is seen as a possible Republican pickup in 2020 following her competitive 2014 re-election race.
