Democratic, GOP super PACs pouring money for mailings, ads in New Mexico races


SANTA FE, New Mexico — Democratic and Republican super PACs have pumped more than $1 million this month into New Mexico's legislative and other state office races.

The political action committees can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to independently advocate the election or defeat of candidates.

According to the latest finance reports, the Democratic group Patriot Majority New Mexico spent almost $892,000 from Oct. 7 through Tuesday. That included $360,000 on radio and television ads, $108,000 on mailings and more than $300,000 given to other groups supporting Democrats.

The GOP group Advance New Mexico Now spent $524,000, including $264,000 on mailings and $150,000 to a PAC that's aiding the GOP secretary of state candidate.

A federal super PAC also is airing TV ads to help the Democratic secretary of state candidate.
