Another Strong Fundraising Quarter for Heinrich in New Mexico
Brings In Nearly $1.1 Million In Last Six Weeks, Totaling $1.76 Million in the Bank
Tuesday, July 10, 2012, the Martin Heinrich for U.S. Senate campaign released a preview of its latest financial report, which includes more than $1.76 million cash-on-hand and $1.41 million raised for the quarter. Heinrich has gained significant state-wide momentum since the primary election for New Mexico's open senate seat, bringing in nearly $1.1 million in the last six weeks alone. Since the beginning of his campaign, Heinrich has raised more than $3.89 million from 8,732 individuals.
“I'm grateful to receive the backing of so many New Mexicans from every corner of the state,” said Heinrich. “Moving our country forward requires fresh ideas and hard work. I've covered thousands of miles traveling the state meeting with voters. Together, we are building the largest grassroots campaign New Mexico has ever seen.”
- Highlights from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) report include:
- Cash on Hand: $1,763,770
- Raised Since Last Reporting Period (May 16, 2012): $1,087,800
- Raised for Quarter: $1,417,742
- Total Number of Contributions (for Quarter): 5,629
- Percentage of Contributions Under $100 (for Quarter): 80%

Public polls have consistently put Heinrich in the lead ahead of Republican Heather Wilson. Since announcing his candidacy, Heinrich continues to receive overwhelming support from Indian tribes, pueblos, and nations across the state and a variety of organizations such as labor unions, environmental groups, and advocates for senior citizens.
“One thing is certain, Congresswoman Wilson has always put herself and the special interests ahead of the people she was supposed to represent,” said Heinrich. “My campaign is about standing with New Mexico's working families and fighting for what matters most to the middle class.” The FEC report, which will be filed in the coming days, covers money raised between May 17, 2012 and June 30, 2012. The deadline to file is July 15, 2012.
