DURHAM- Republican presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson has reportedly raised $20 million in the last three months.
That figure shatters records for rapid fundraising, contributing to the $31 million total he's raised since he announced his bid in May.
He visited the Granite State on Wednesday for the first time since the CNN debates. It's also his first to the state since August.
At the University of New Hampshire, with a maximum capacity crowd, he highlighted the fiscal gap, climate change and responsible voting.
He asked all audience members to recruit three new people to vote, even if it's not a vote for Carson himself. That was a sentiment that stood out to students in attendance.
"Ninety-three million people didn't vote," said one student Matt Barakian, reflecting on Caron's speech. "That's mind blowing."
Carson warmed the audience up with some candid stories of his younger years. He even joked about throwing rocks at cars and getting chased by police. "That was back in the day, before they would shoot you," he joked.
When NH1 News asked if he feels he may be intimidating Donald Trump, as Carson's poll numbers continue to climb closer to the front-runner, he replied, "That's not my goal."
