Hassan runs first ad as GOP claims more irregularities
Hassan campaign spokesman Aaron Jacobs said the IBEW money was returned Monday.
The ruling allows unlimited PAC to PAC contributions as has been the case since the Citizen United ruling by the US Supreme Court. But once a candidate officially files for office, then limits apply, which are $1,000 per election for candidates who do not abide by the voluntary limit and $5,000 per election for those who do.
But GOP state chairwoman Jennifer Horn contends that contribution and several others from union political action committees are illegal, because the committees did not register with the Secretary of State’s office within 24 hours of the making the contributions.
Hassan and Foster served together in the state Senate.
Jacobs said the Republicans are trying to distract voters from the governor’s accomplishments.“It’s clear from the New Hampshire Republican Party’s desperate attacks, that they’re trying to distract from the fact that their candidates are simply rehashing the same disastrous Bill O’Brien/Koch Brothers agenda that voters rejected in 2012,” Jacobs said. “Granite Staters support Gov. Hassan because she’s moving the state in the right direction and getting things done for New Hampshire’s people, businesses and economy.”
Among the accomplishments she cites are a bipartisan balanced budget without a sales or income tax, freezing tuition at state colleges and universities, expanding health coverage, improving mental health services and establishing a plan to fix the state’s roads and bridges.
Hassan has no significant opposition in the Democratic primary. Walt Havenstein and Andrew Hemingway are facing off in the Sept. 9 Republican primary.
