Senator Maggie Hassan, the most vulnerable Democrat in the U.S. Senate, votes in line with Democrat Party leaders from places like Chuck Schumer’s New York and Nancy Pelosi’s California. So, it makes sense that’s where her campaign cash is coming from. She doesn’t represent New Hampshire.
Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: “Maggie Hassan is already in desperation mode and hoping that liberals from New York City can bail out her struggling campaign. It makes sense that New Yorkers believe she’s fighting for their best interests instead of New Hampshire’s since she votes almost 100% of the time with Chuck Schumer. Granite Staters already know that Hassan is anything but a voice for New Hampshire.”

As Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan gets ready to ask Granite Staters for their votes, she’s taking in more campaign cash from New York and other liberal states.
According to the most recent reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, contributions from New Hampshire donors don’t even get into the top three states donating to Hassan’s campaign this year. Since Jan. 1, Hassan has taken $651,772 from New Yorkers, $617,908 from California, and $566,260 from Massachusetts.
Granite Staters have given Hassan $438,887, according to the federal reports.
Hassan’s team was touting the haul earlier this summer, pointing out her $6.5 million in total cash on hand puts her in the lead for the race, though she doesn’t have a primary opponent.
