SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Democrat Hector Balderas says his campaign for attorney general has raised about $239,200 in the past six months.

Balderas' campaign announced Thursday that it has a cash balance of more than $600,000.

The candidate released partial fundraising information in advance of next week's deadline for filing a campaign finance report with the secretary of state's office.

Balderas and Republican Susan Riedel are running for attorney general. Neither have primary election opponents.

Balderas has served as state auditor since 2007. Riedel is a former judge and prosecutor from Las Cruces.

Financial reports due next Monday will show how much legislative and state office candidates have raised and spent from October through early April.
