GOP Matt Mowers Announces Record Election Cycle Fundraising

Republican candidate for New Hampshire’s first congressional district, Matt Mowers, has announced an all-time record fundraising campaign of nearly $1.2 million raised so far this election cycle as he seeks to exit of the main representative of his party and to overthrow Chris Pappas (D-NH) in November.

The campaign touted that Mowers, as a frontrunner, continues to set fundraising records in his bid to unseat Pappas. The Mowers campaign also noted that he became the first Republican congressional candidate in New Hampshire history to raise more than $1.1 million so far in the cycle.

Since announcing his candidacy for Congress last August, the Mowers campaign has increased its record by more than 7,200 individual donors. Since then, it has been able to receive donors from all 50 states and has received an average donation of $85.61.

In the first quarter alone, Mowers raised $340,808 from 4,248 donors. In the first three months of the year, he also recorded an average donation of $72, with 94% of his donations being less than $100.

Compared to Mowers’ 2020 round, in which it narrowly lost, it was unable to raise more than $1.1 million until September, just months before the election. In fact, he was only able to raise $354,484 at this point in the cycle, which gave him a huge advantage over what he had in 2020.

“Matt Mowers is raising the resources to defeat the Pappas-Pelosi machine in November, and clearly his message resonates with Granite Staters,” said Mowers campaign manager Parker Carey.

“As Nancy Pelosi buys millions of dollars worth of ads to support Pappas’ failed campaign, grassroots conservatives in New Hampshire and across the country are rallying in support of Matt,” Carey continued. “In November, Matt Mowers will defeat Chris Pappas and take over New Hampshire’s First District.”

Mowers worked at Trump Tower during his 2016 campaign, served on former President Donald Trump’s transition team, then served as a senior White House adviser to the State Department before running as a Republican against Pappas in 2020. Today, Mower successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for his election and kept calling out Pappas for his mistakes.

Mowers called out Pappas for his poor voting record — voting for the Build Back Better Act, the Democrats’ reconciliation infrastructure bill — and failing Granite Staters by being blindly loyal to President Joe Biden.

He also called on Pappas to take action against members and their wives for profiting from corrupt insider trading practices and to condemn TV ads funded by billionaire Bill Gates’ “dark money” organization that thanked for backing Democrats’ sweeping spending plans.
