Oil and gas gives big to Martinez
About half of the campaign contributions Republican gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez received during the past six months came from the oil and natural gas industry, according to an analysis by The Associated Press.
The $215,000 the AP said Martinez raised from oil and gas donors from October 1 to April 5 includes $117,500 from Mack Energy Corp. of Artesia. In all, Martinez raised $428,064.67 during the reporting period.
The AP quoted Martinez’s campaign manager, Adam Deguire, as saying the contributions won’t affect Martinez’s decisions if she’s elected.
