J.D. Bullington, a longtime New Mexico lobbyist on contract to represent more than 20 clients, made $81,050 in campaign contributions to New Mexico politicians on behalf of his clients last year — more than other lobbyists registered in the state.
But Bullington said last week he doesn’t think a good lobbyist needs to hand out the cash to do a good job. In fact, he said, he’s a staunch supporter of banning all contributions from lobbyists.
