According to an Albuquerque Journal article linked below, some interesting facts have emerged:
- Tom Udall, who wants to clean up campaign finance, has a war chest of 3 million dollars. From other sources we know that much of that comes from out of state fundraising, Act Blue and National Democratic Pacs and Committees, and some of it as lobby money paid to him by parties seeking his vote on legislation in the Senate.
- Allen Weh lent his campaign $500,000 of his own money to get it jump-started.
- In Steve Pearce’s district, National Democratic groups have targeted him and have been dumping money onto his challenger Roxanne Lara. She is getting funds heavily from Labor Unions and National PACS.
- Michelle Lujan Grisham has $ 922,000. Her opponent Michael Frese has $12,000. She has received $52,000 from health care interests.
- Ben Ray Lujan has $581,000 in his campaign fund. His opponent Jefferson Byrd has $9,000. Lujan has received $58,000 from healthcare and medical industry PAC’s.
What these figures tell us at DoesTomUdallRepresentYou.com is that all this talk of cleaning up Washington D.C. is all about getting re-elected without a challenge. If voters really want to clean up Washington they will vote for the challenger regardless of his party or political ideology. If this doesn’t prove that politicians have made their re-election a shoo in, we don’t know what it takes.
Democrat incumbents have ALL the money and that is no surprise. With most of their money coming from out of state, the only way New Mexico voters can determine their destiny is to vote the rascals out no matter what they say.
For all the voters who thought ObamaCare was going to clean up the medical business, they were definitely wrong. New Mexico Democrats are owned by the medical industry to the tops of their foreheads.
