ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - The campaign ad war is heating up in New Mexico's race for governor.
Democrat Alan Webber started airing a television ad Wednesday, and Republican Gov. Susana Martinez launched her third English-language ad so far in the campaign.
Webber's ad
takes a swipe at Martinez for speaking at a conference last year organized by a company owned by billionaires Charles and David Koch, who are supporters of conservative causes.
The Martinez ad stresses the governor's support for school funding and selling a state jet to save money.
Webber is among five Democrats running for governor. The others are Attorney General Gary King, Lawrence Rael and state Sens. Linda Lopez and Howie Morales.
The winner of the June 3 primary election will challenge Martinez in the general election.
