Martin Heinrich Has $710K For NM Senate Campaign

New Mexico – SANTA FE, N.M. (KRWG) Democratic Congressman Martin Heinrich reports having nearly $710,000 available for his campaign for New Mexico's open U.S. Senate seat.

Heinrich collected $485,000 in contributions from April through the end of June. That's according to a fundraising summary released by his campaign.

Democratic state Auditor Hector Balderas raised almost $408,000 during the last quarter. He reports cash-on-hand of almost $371,000 at the end of June in his Senate campaign account.

On the Republican side, former Congresswoman Heather Wilson collected almost $447,000 in contributions and had a cash balance of $604,000 in her Senate campaign account.

Republican Lt. Gov. John Sanchez announced in late May that he's running for the Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Jeff Bingaman. No fundraising summary was available from Sanchez's campaign.
