SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Candidates for governor and other state elective offices face a deadline for reporting their fundraising since New Mexico's primary election.

The campaign finance reports must be filed Thursday.

The disclosures will provide the first look at how much Democratic and Republican candidates for governor have collected for their general election race during the past month.

Democratic Lt. Gov. Diane Denish and Republican Susana Martinez, the district attorney in Las Cruces, are running to become New Mexico's first female governor.

Martinez won a five-way GOP primary contest. Denish was unopposed on the Democratic ballot.

Denish's campaign had a cash balance of $2.6 million as of May 25, and Martinez had $139,000.
