U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, shown in a file photo, has more than $5 million on hand.

Facing a challenge from Scott Brown, US Senator Jeanne Shaheen raised more than $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, her campaign said today. The New Hampshire Democrat ended June with more than $5.1 million in cash on hand.

Brown, who faces a GOP primary but is expected to be his party’s standard bearer against Shaheen in November, raised more than $2 million in April, May and June, according a Brown campaign aide, who said other fund-raising figures were still being finalized.

Detailed second-quarter fund-raising reports from Shaheen, Brown and other federal candidates are due to the Federal Election Commission by July 15 — a week from Tuesday.

Brown, a former US senator from Massachusetts, moved his primary residence to New Hampshire last year and announced in April he was running to unseat Shaheen, a longtime state political figure.

Shaheen was first elected to the US Senate in 2008. She had previously served as the state’s governor and as a state senator.

A June poll of likely voters in New Hampshire found Brown trailing Shaheen by 10 percentage points.
