SANTA FE – It’s not an election year in New Mexico, but that hasn’t stopped candidates and political committees from raising big sums of campaign cash over the past several months.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who is not up for reelection until 2022, reported Tuesday collecting more than $602,000 during a recent six-month reporting period, while recently approved legislative caucus committees ramped up their fundraising with a key election season on tap in 2020.
A U.S. Senate seat is also up for election in 2020 due to Tom Udall’s decision not to seek reelection, and U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., has a sizable fundraising advantage over his Democratic primary rival, New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver.
