Election 2022 Campaign Gun Raffle

Audrey Trujillo, the Republican nominee for secretary of state, courts voters at a campaign rally June 24 in Rio Rancho.

The Republican nominee for secretary of state has removed an online campaign flyer that offered the chance to receive a firearm in return for $100 donations to her campaign.

The gun “giveaway” offer on a Facebook campaign website for candidate Audrey Trujillo appeared to run afoul of a state prohibition on the use of raffles to raise funds for an individual running for office.

Contacted Thursday by the Associated Press, Trujillo said she was removing the gun giveaway flyer out of concern it might be out of compliance. She said her campaign would offer refunds for any contributions linked to the gun offer.
