(Scroll down for the most recent numbers from other candidates)
According to her campaign, gubernatorial candidate Diane Denish raised a million bucks between early May and early October, and has $2.2 million on hand. That's likely to be the most raised by the candidates running in 2010, but we'll keep you updated as other reports come in today.
While she may have the biggest bank, the quickest candidate today was lieutenant governor candidate Greg Solano, who has already emailed in his report. (He raised $11,865.) Other candidates: please do the same and send your reports directly to us, so that we can finish our stories with your numbers in time for tomorrow's paper. (It's unclear how soon it will be before the Secretary of State's web site is updated with the reports.)
UPDATE, 1:36 p.m.
Democratic Lt. Gov. candidate Lawrence Rael says he's raised $127,000, including a $15,000 loan to himself. and GOP gubernatorial candidate Allen Weh said he pulled in more than $559,000, including a $250,000 loan from himself.
NOTE: all of the numbers I have so far came from the candidates' campaigns, not the Secretary of State's web site. I still don't see where these reports are going to be filed. Can anyone help me? (I haven't received a response from the SOS's office yet.)
UPDATE, 2:13 p.m.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Turner just emailed that he's raised. $255,852, which includes a loan of $243,552.
Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino says he raised $22,000, including a $3,700 loan from himself.
UPDATE, 2:58 p.m.
The Secretary of State's Office just emailed two links for finding information on today's filings. They are here and here. Best I can tell, however, they are not completely up to date, as I typed in two candidates I know have filed already, and they are not listed.
UPDATE, 3:04 p.m.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Susanna Martinez raised $141,265, according to her campaign. Her press release doesn't include her full report, but says she has $130,658 on hand.
UPDATE, 3:26 p.m.
(Anyone interested in interning for me? I've got a great little campaign finance database project for you to work on. . .)
UPDATE, 4:10 p.m.
State Rep. Jose Campos, a Democrat running for lieutenant governor, has filed his report. He raised $148,368, including $100,000 in loans. (Those loans, however, are not listed on Campos' cover page, just on the inside of his report.)
UPDATE, 4:40 p.m.
Former chairman of the state Democratic Party Brian Colon says he raised $264,203 in cash, with no loans. So far, Colon, seeking the lieutenant governor spot, is the lead fund raiser for that post.
Update, 5:00 p.m.
GOP candidate J.R. Damron for lieutenant governor said he raised $3,500. That total includes a $500 contribution from himself and a $3,000 loan to himself, he said.
Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones, a GOP candidate for governor, reports she raised $20,945. Former state Rep. Brian Moore says he collected $4,500 this period.
Meanwhile, the new Democratic state party Chairman, Javier Gonzales, just pointed out that Denish has raised more than all the GOP candidates combined. . .
I better get finished writing a story for the newspaper tomorrow so I can meet my deadline. More updates later as warranted.
