By Special to the Monitor

SANTA FE — Lt. Gov. Diane Denish has nearly $2.6 million stockpiled in her campaign for the Democratic nomination for governor, giving her a large fundraising advantage over the Republicans in a crowded gubernatorial primary field.

Denish reported Monday that her campaign had received monetary contributions of $1.1 million and in-kind contributions of goods and services worth $51,308 from October through April 5. Her campaign spent $715,539.

Five Republicans are seeking the GOP nomination for governor. Denish is running unopposed on the June 1 primary election ballot.

Former state GOP chairman Allen Weh used personal money to give a financial boost to his gubernatorial campaign.

Weh raised $691,003, with a half-million dollars of that from a personal loan, according to a summary released by the campaign. He previously had loaned his campaign $250,000.

Weh’s campaign spent $519,026 and received $48,843 worth of in-kind contributions. The campaign had a cash balance of $544,142 as of last week. Weh owns an air charter company in Albuquerque.
