SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez raised nearly $875,000 for her re-election campaign in the past month, which was more than twice as much as Democratic challenger Gary King.
King has collected $320,665 since late May, according to campaign finance reports filed Thursday.
Of King’s total receipts, $200,000 came from a loan by the candidate a few days after he won the Democratic gubernatorial nomination and prepared to start airing television advertising to counter an ad blitz by a national GOP group.
The latest reports cover fundraising from May 28 to June 28.
Martinez raised $874,752 and spent $860,054, with two-thirds of that going to produce and air TV and radio ads.
