ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Elected officials and candidates for office had until the end of Tuesday to file their latest campaign finance reports with the Secretary of State’s Office.
The reporting period covers spending and donations received during the last six months.
The office’s ethics bureau plans to audit a random sampling of the filings.
New Mexico’s campaign finance reporting system is in the spotlight, due to embattled Secretary of State Dianna Duran. She’s accused of spending campaign donations at casinos and trying to cover it up.
