Gov. Susana Martinez’s campaign has more than 37 times more money in the bank than her Democratic opponent, Gary King, according to campaign finance reports filed Thursday.

According to the reports, filed with the Secretary of State’s Office, the incumbent Republican governor raised more than $869,000 in the past month and spent $860,054, which left her with more than $4.3 million in cash on hand.

    King was “the worst attorney general” - Democratic Party Chairman Sam Bregman

    King should “consider recusing himself from office…” – The New Mexican

    “Fat girls should not wear bikini’s!” – Gary King’s campaign manager

    Gary King - “average capabilities.”

    Reality Check, Joseph:
    The "Blame Game" among political parties, is as old
    as Carpet-Bagging candidates armed with special-interest
    "donations".

    Take a hard look at The State of New Mexico, and The United
    States of "America". Do you honestly believe any political party
    or their politicians, can repair the disaster - which they themselves created?

    Suffice for it to say, for now: The American Revelation (3;7) is NOW.

    "Gov. Susana Martinez’s campaign has more than 37 times more money in the bank than her Democratic opponent, Gary King."

    Let's see, she get's all of the oiligarch (Koch Brothers) out-of-state money, plus the support of NM oil and gas... Knowing that would make me vote for anything with a pulse instead of Martinez. I hope others are THINKING the same way as they watch the barrage of TV ads that will be coming our way soon.

    As long as they are buying her, I wish they would remember to take her with them and not leave her with us!

    Perhaps they want us to ship her?

    No out of state donors for King? Aww, that's too bad. I'm shocked that he has any donors from anywhere. Way to go, Dems, you picked a loser for a candidate. You just didn't realize how much of a loser he was. Even my liberal friends cringe at the mention of his name.[smile]

    It looks like out-of-state interests are buying our governorship for the second time. The GOP has played the race card again. I guess "Mrs. Franco" wouldn't provide as much leverage.

    In one of the poorest-state's in America, with some of
    the worst economic statistics, the politician seeking
    re-election as Governor...has $4.3M CASH ON HAND?

    More confirmation, for what I've taught:
    The only real differences between Democrats and Republicans,
    are the deceptions which they perpetuate, the benefactors whom
    they serve, and the toll paid - by citizens.

    RNC? DNC? Terminal, American cancers.
