Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Feltes has raised more money than Governor Chris Sununu has over the past month. But with election day less than three weeks away, Sununu maintains a large cash advantage.

Feltes has raised $290,000 since September 16. His haul since getting into the race now tops $1.4 million.

Governor Sununu collected less - $212,000 - over the last month. But overall he's collected more, $1.7 million.

Most salient right now though, is what the two have left to spend. There, Sununu has a significant advantage. His campaign reports having $594,000; cash on hand for Dan Feltes is just shy of $99,000.

But spending by outside interest groups will also be a factor this race.

The state Democratic party has plowed a million dollars into a pro-Feltes ad linking Sununu to President Trump. But the Republican Governor's association has spent as much boosting Sununu, and has signaled a willingness to spend more.
