It's Campaign Finance Report Filing Day ...

And the Secretary of State has a new campaign finance report Web site.

As with any launch of any new systems there's bound to be bugs. I sure hope I'm wrong.

Checking shortly before 9 a.m., none of the gubernatorial candidates had filed.

As for lieutenant governor, Republicans Kent Cravens and J.R. Damron (who has dropped out of the race) win the early bird prize.

Cravens, a state senator from Albuquerque, has raised $57,990 and spent $34,583.

Damron, a Santa Fe doctor,$24,975 and spent $24,451 -- some of which was in the form of partial campaign contributions.

More of these will be coming in throughout the day.
