Michelle Lujan Grisham Raises More than $500,000 in Third Quarter
ALBUQUERQUE – Democratic Congressional Nominee Michelle Lujan Grisham raised more than $500,000 during the last three months in the race for New Mexico’s 1st District.
Since the start of her campaign, nearly 5,000 people have contributed to Michelle’s run for Congress, generating about $1.4 million to enable her to reach voters with TV ads and through an aggressive field campaign.
“Supporters have enthusiastically embraced Michelle’s promise to restore the middle class by putting New Mexicans back to work,” said campaign manager Dominic Gabello. “We need to let voters know about the differences between Michelle and her opponent. Michelle will fight the Ryan Budget, which her opponent fully embraces, that will gut Medicare and force seniors to pay an additional $6,300 a year for healthcare.”
Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign will file its latest finance report with the Federal Election Commission by Oct. 15. The report, which is being finalized, reflects contributions and spending from July through September. The report will show that her campaign raised more than $500,000 for the 3rd quarter, which is $50,000 more than she raised in the 2nd quarter of 2012 as she competed in a fierce primary with two well-known opponents.
