The Associated Press had an interesting little story last week on fundraising. It reported on details from the candidates’ fundraising reports.We have stated before that more and more our elections are for sale to the highest bidder and this report does not defuse that argument.It is a tragedy that it has come to this, but in a free society we see little that can be done.Anyway, here is some of the AP report.
RICHARDSON:• Total receipts to date: (includes contributions for primary and general elections, loans and transfers) $18.7 million (including $674,679 for general election).• Total contributions to date: $18.5 million.• Total spending: $12.8 million.• Cash on hand: $5.8 million.• Debt: None.• Top donor states this quarter: New Mexico, $995,064; California, $551,405; New York, $332,747.(Note: New Mexico state employees contributed at least $39,600; employees of Kaplan, Fox & Kilsheimer gave at least $20,300 and employees of Dreier LLP gave at least $12,150. Both are New York City law firms.)Of note: The New Mexico governor continues to draw support from his loyal underlings. Mostly senior-level state employees were top givers to his campaign for the quarter and have kicked in at least $257,230 overall. Another $42,150 has come from employees of the University of New Mexico thus far in the campaign.
