New Mexico Govenor to Be in Yakima for McKenna Fundraiser

governor.state.nm.us

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez will be in Yakima to raise funds for WA gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna.

Martinez is a first-term Republican elected in 2010 who has been mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick for presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney. She is the first Hispanic female governor in U.S. history.

Meeting Martinez and McKenna will come at a price: the campaign is charging $1,000 per person for a private reception and photo opportunity prior to a lunch reception, which will cost $125 per person to attend.

The fundraiser will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 3 at Roche Fruit on North First Avenue in Yakima.

 

McKenna is neck-and-neck with his Democratic opponent, Jay Inslee, in fundraising. According to the campaigns’ most recent Public Disclosure Commission reports, both candidates have raised around $6.7 million. The latest polls reflect a dead heat in the race.
