Here is a breakdown of how much money the top New Hampshire staffers, from the top three presidential candidates, made during the second fiscal quarter. I'm sure some campaigns will e-mail me with corrections, so I will update the figures throughout the weekend.
Jim Merrill, State Director: $22,912.92
Jamie Burnett, Political Director: $16, 783.80
Wayne Semprini, Chairman: $22, 327.80
Jennifer Hallowell, Executive Director: $7, 854.98 (joined in 2nd quarter)
David Tille, Political Director: $21, 151.80
Jim Barnett, Campaign Manager: $23, 159.46
Michael Dennehy, State Based Consultant: $27, 153. 87
Nick Clemons, State Director: $25, 170.84
Sarah Nolan, Political Director: $14, 780. 58
Tracey Lewis, State Field Coordinator: $16, 811.40

Multiply those numbers by four and you get some hefty yearly salaries. Who ever said that being a campaign worker didn't pay the bills.
