SANTA FE — Republican John Sanchez is bankrolling his campaign in a three-way primary election race for the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor, according to the latest fundraising reports.

Sanchez, an Albuquerque roofing company owner, lent his campaign $75,000 during the past month, bringing to $348,800 the personal money he’s put into the race for lieutenant governor. He was the GOP gubernatorial nominee in 2002, but lost to Democrat Bill Richardson in the general election.

Sanchez reported cash-on-hand of $153,732 in his campaign account as of last week. Former state Rep. Brian Moore of Clayton had $128,086 and state Sen. Kent Cravens of Albuquerque had a campaign balance of $74,586, according to fundraising disclosures filed Monday with the secretary of state’s office.

In the five-way race for the Democratic nomination, former state party chairman Brian Colón had the largest campaign reserves — $114,050. Lawrence Rael reported cash-on-hand of $68,356; state Rep. Jose Campos of Santa Rosa, $65,723; state Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, $7,105; and state Sen. Linda Lopez, $2,116.

Winners of the lieutenant governor races in the June 1 primary become the running mates of their gubernatorial nominees.
