May. 14, 2018
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Candidates for governor and other public offices in New Mexico are filing campaign finance reports that detail contributions and expenditures with three weeks left until the June 5 primary election.
Monday evening is the deadline for candidates and political committees to make public their fundraising activities during a recent five-week period. Candidates have unleashed ads on television, radio and social media amid early voting.
In prior reports, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham raised the most contributions among three candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for governor, while sole Republican candidate Steve Pearce had stockpiled the most campaign cash.
Among Democratic contenders, state Sen. Joseph Cervantes and former media executive Jeff Apodaca have lent money to their campaigns.
Monday's mandatory report is the second of four linked to the primary election.
