CONCORD, NH - Stephen Stepanek, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee, released the following statement after Chris Pappas released his most recent FEC filing that reported 61% of his donations were from PACs connected to Nancy Pelosi and only 3% from NH-01:

“After campaigning as a bipartisan voice for New Hampshire, Chris Pappas has reverted to his DC ways, bowing at the altar of Nancy Pelosi in exchange for max out checks from her PACs to make up for his lackluster fundraising efforts. Instead of catering to his constituency in the Speaker’s office, Pappas needs to put New Hampshire first and push back against the radical Left’s Washington take over. Pappas should spend less time asking Speaker Pelosi for campaign donations and more time fighting for COVID relief that Granite Staters desperately need.”
