Denish Raises Another $750 K

UPDATED: The entire 305-page report is now included below, as well as a link to my New Mexican story.

Lt. Gov. Diane Denish raised almost $750,000 in the last three months of 2009, according to her campaign.

A news release from Denish spokesman Chris Cervini said Denish, the only announced Democrat running for governor, has more than $2.5 million cash on hand.

Denish for the past two years or so has voluntarily released quarterly campaign finance reports -- even though state law doesn't require her to do so. By law, the next required report is in May.

Last week Republican gubernatorial contender state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones released her campaign contributors. She's raised more than $50,000 for her campaign. Las Cruces District Attorney Susana Martinez has said she'll be releasing a report soon.

UPDATE: Campaign spokesman Chris Cervini reports Friday morning that about 75 percent of the money Denish has collected is from in state.

Below is the entire report. My story in Friday's New Mexican is HERE.
