ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Mayoral candidate Manny Gonzales has raised thousands in donations in just a few weeks. According to campaign finance reports filed Monday, Gonzales raised more than $338,000 in about a month.
Gonzales has been seeking private donations since being denied $600,000 in public financing by the city clerk. He has received more than 900 donations between September 7 and October 4.
Meanwhile, incumbent Mayor Tim Keller received public financing and can no longer collect donations. He still has more than $313,000 left of that funding.
Eddy Aragon, a conservative radio host who is also running a privately financed campaign, has $25,000.
