Rep. Martin Heinrich Raises $575,000+ in 3Q, More Than $1 Million in Bank

Rep. Heinrich: what's at stake this election

Impressive. Today, the Martin Heinrich for Congress campaign (D, NM-01) released a preview of third quarter financial numbers -- including more than $1 million cash-on-hand and over $575,000 raised since the last quarterly FEC report.

“We expect a very close race in a swing district, but it's clear that Martin has the momentum of grassroots support strongly and consistently behind him to move central New Mexico forward,” said campaign press secretary Marsha Garcia, in a statement released today.

Highlights from the report include:

  • Over 2,500 contributions in the last three months, approximately double the number of contributors than in the second financial quarter.
  • Over 95% of the contributions came from individuals.
  • 72% of contributions from individuals were $100 or less.
  • 27% of contributions came from new donors, a sign that Martin’s grassroots donor base is getting stronger.

The FEC report for the third financial quarter, which runs July 1, 2010 through September 30, 2010, will be filed in the coming days. The deadline to file is October 15, 2010.

No word yet from Rep. Heinrich's GOP opponent about his numbers for this quarter. However, during the last quarter, Martin raised $376,000 to Jon Barela's $244,000 and had $1,302,000 cash-on-hand to Barela's $537,000 in the bank when the second quarter ended in July. Let's keep it up.
