SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - National political groups, including the Republican Governors Association, are pumping campaign money into New Mexico to influence this year’s elections.

The GOP governor’s group has contributed $100,000 to its New Mexico political action committee that can make expenditures to help Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s re-election bid.

According to reports filed with the secretary of state’s office, the RGA’s New Mexico PAC has spent about $29,000 so far on political research. The PAC received $100,000 from the RGA late last year, and had cash-on-hand of about $70,400 as of last week.

The national Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee has a New Mexico committee that received $43,000 in the past month, including $10,000 from software maker Intuit Inc. No expenditures have been reported so far. The national group supports state legislative candidates.
