SANTA FE — Democratic Attorney General Gary King has boosted his re-election fundraising with personal loans of $60,000, according to a new campaign finance disclosure.
King’s campaign raised $166,271, including the loans, and spent $73,049 from October through April 5.
The Republican candidate for attorney general, Matthew Chandler of Clovis, collected $67,883 for his campaign and spent $8,712.
King had $93,222 of cash in his campaign account and Chandler reported a balance of $62,720 as of last week.
Both candidates are unopposed in the June 1 primary. Chandler is the district attorney in the 9th Judicial District of Curry and Roosevelt counties.
Contributions to King’s campaign included $4,500 from a New York law firm, Labaton Sucharow, which has represented New Mexico in lawsuits over securities fraud and investment losses. King also got $1,000 from the National Rifle Association’s political committee; $5,000 from Charles DuMars, an Albuquerque lawyer specializing in water and environmental law; and $5,000 from Roswell oilman Robert Armstrong.
Former state insurance superintendent Eric Serna contributed $250 to King. Serna retired in 2006 in an agreement with the state Public Regulation Commission after it suspended him over conflict-of-interest issues.
