SANTA FE (AP) — A new campaign finance report shows a national labor union continues to pour money into a New Mexico political action committee that's critical of Republican Gov. Susana Martinez.
A report filed with the Federal Election Commission shows the Independent Source PAC received $90,000 from the Communications Workers of America in January and February. The union contributed $100,000 last year.
The PAC spent $91,251 from January through March, including nearly $12,900 for cable television advertising that it said was in support of President Barack Obama.
The group has issued reports critical of the governor's education secretary and the awarding of a lease allowing the Downs at Albuquerque to build a larger casino at the state fairgrounds.
The PAC had cash-on-hand of about $9,200 at the end of March.
