I feel good about the results of the Albuquerque Journal Poll today. Despite being heavily outspent by my incumbent opponent I am still leading him with just five weeks to go. I am at 43% and he is at 39%. He will most certainly start spending quite a bit of his oil and gas industry donations over the next five weeks, but so far he still hasn't been able to move. It is gratifying to see his first negative commercials had so little effect. I hope the public will understand that every bit of his media buy will be funded by those who do business with the State Land Office. Once again, that is a good reason for public financing of this race in the future.
I still need to raise money in the next couple of weeks for TV buys. You can donate at jimbaca.com
