Familiar names lead fundraising for U.S. House seat

SANTA FE — Democrats Antoinette Sedillo Lopez and Deb Haaland continue to lead the fundraising scramble in the 1st Congressional District.

Over a recent six-week period, Sedillo Lopez took in about $197,000 in contributions and Haaland received about $153,000 — far ahead of the other four Democrats in the race, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Sedillo Lopez is a retired law professor, Haaland a former chairwoman of the state Democratic Party.

Following those two are Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis, who accept $66,000 in contributions, and former U.S. Attorney Damon Martinez, who received about $64,000.

Rounding out the race are Damian Lara and Paul Moya.

Whoever wins the Democratic nomination will face Republican Janice Arnold-Jones and Libertarian Lloyd Princeton in the Nov. 6 general election.

There’s no incumbent in the race. U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor rather than campaign for re-election.
