Denish outspent Martinez in gubernatorial run
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Diane Denish outspent Gov.-elect Susana Martinez in the bitter gubernatorial race. Denish spent over $7 million on her bid to become governor while Martinez spent $6.7 million.
Denish raised more than $335,000 in the campaign finance reporting period which began on October 27 and has more than $185,000 left in her campaign coffers.
Martinez raised $312,000 and reported more than $100,000 left in her campaign treasury according to reports filed with the Secretary of State’s office.
That’s not the end of the fundraising for Martinez, however. She’ll be raising money for her inaugural ball and other events celebrating her inauguration. The events — including a Las Cruces Inaugural Send-Off Gala, the Children’s Inaugural Ball for kids ages 5-11 and her Bold Inaugural Ball — will all be paid for with private donations. Martinez promises to publicly disclose the donors.
