Bob Smith Senate campaign raised $135k in Q2, reports $79k on hand

CONCORD – Republican former Sen. Bob Smith’s campaign for the New Hampshire U.S. Senate seat raised $135,866 in the second quarter of 2014 and entered July with $78,946 on hand, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday.


Since becoming a candidate, Smith has raised a total of $351,418 and spent $271,971.


Smith’s campaign lists debt totaling $78,485.


His total raised for the quarter fell short of the campaign’s estimate last week that it had raised more than $200,000 during the period.


Still, Smith so far in the campaign has received $339,393 from individual donors, and $187,282 of that came in small, unitemized contributions of $200 or less.


Smith became the final major Senate candidate to disclose his quarterly finances. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen reported raising $2.8 million in the quarter with more than $5 million on hand.


Republican Scott Brown raised $2.3 million and had $1.5 million on hand. Fellow Republican Jim Rubens reported raising $22,085 in the second quarter, but he also loaned his own campaign an additional $253,000 in personal funds and reported having $414,184 on hand.
