Roundup of political fundraising around the state

October 9, 2018

UPDATED

A political newcomer challenging embattled state Rep. Monica Youngblood, R-Albuquerque, during the past raised more than five times more campaign cash than Youngblood, reports filed Monday show.

Youngblood, who was convicted of aggravated drunken driving late last month, still has more than twice as much money in the bank as Democrat Karen Bash. But Bash since early September has taken in a little over $30,000, compared to Youngblood’s total of $5,930 in new contributions.

A major legislative supporter of outgoing Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, Youngblood has represented House District 68 in northwest Albuquerque since 2013.

In other House races considered competitive, Democrats tended to lead Republicans in fundraising in several districts that have been held in recent years by Republicans. These include the Albuquerque seat currently held by retiring House GOP Nate Gentry, where Democrat Natalie Figueroa has collected more contributions than Republican John Jones, and District 15, currently held by Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes, who isn’t seeking re-election. There, newcomer Day Hochman leads Republican Brad Winter, a former Albuquerque city councilor, in fundraising.

Here are numbers for the last reporting period in key Legislative races as well as competitive statewide contests.
