Governor Chris Sununu is entering the final stretch of his reelection effort with a $200,000 financial edge over Democratic challenger Molly Kelly. But Kelly has outraised Sununu 3 to 1 since the state primary.

Sununu’s campaign has collected close to $1.5 million in overall donations but only $110,000 since last month’s primary. Kelly, meanwhile has hauled in nearly $350,000 over the same period. The bulk of Kelly’s money is derived from donations less than $100.

The new fundraising numbers come as a St. Anselm College poll shows Sununu leading Kelly by 10 points. But with his overall support below 50 percent.

In a statement on his fundraising, Sununu’s campaign said, “we are right where we need to be.”

But in a fresh solicitation to donors the Governor warned the fundraising news “isn’t good,” and urged donors to take immediate action to make sure Kelly didn’t outraise him.
