Denish Rakes In Cash

New Mexico – Democratic Lt. Gov. Diane Denish has more than $2.7 million available to finance her campaign for governor.

Denish's campaign released a fundraising summary Monday, which is the deadline for candidates to file campaign finance disclosure reports with the secretary of state's office.

Denish has raised about $295,000 during the past month. The latest disclosure covers fundraising from early April through May 3.

Denish is running unopposed on the June primary election ballot.

Five Republicans are seeking the GOP nomination for governor: state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones, Pete Domenici Jr., Susana Martinez, Doug Turner and Allen Weh.
