........................................................................................................................................................................................

SANTA FE (AP) — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez reports raising more than $800,000 in the past six months for her 2014 re-election campaign, and Democratic challenger Gary King has collected about $160,000.

According to finance disclosures filed Tuesday, the governor’s campaign had a cash balance of $1.2 million as of Oct. 1. King, who’s serving a second term as attorney general, had cash-on-hand of nearly $101,000 in his campaign account.

The governor’s re-election committee collected $828,100 and spent about $62,200 since April.

King, who says he will run for governor, received $114,500 in contributions and loaned his campaign $45,500. Law firms, attorneys and legal assistants provided two-thirds of King’s contributions.

Among the Martinez donors giving $10,000 was Sundance Services, which operates an oilfield waste disposal facility near Eunice. The company’s owner contributed $5,000.
