New Mexico governor's PAC raises $71,000

Posted: Updated:

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Republican Gov. Susana Martinez's political action committee has raised nearly $71,000 in the past month.

According to the latest campaign finance reports, Susana PAC had cash-on-hand of about $120,800 after spending almost $20,700 from late May through late June.

The committee contributed about $10,400 to Republican candidates for attorney general, secretary of state and land commissioner.

The PAC collected nearly $43,000 from donors in El Paso, Texas, including $10,000 from the Border Livestock Company.

The governor uses the PAC to contribute to candidates and pay for some of her political travel. The committee has raised about $324,000 since last fall.

Martinez operates a separate re-election campaign committee, which reported cash-on-hand of $4.3 million as of June 28. Democrat Gary King is running against Martinez in the November general election.
