SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Republican Gov. Susana Martinez maintains a large fundraising advantage over the five Democrats seeking to challenge her in the November general election.

Martinez's campaign on Monday reported raising $561,000 in the past month and cash-on-hand of $4.2 million.

Santa Fe businessman Alan Webber is the leading Democratic fundraiser with about $115,700 in contributions, followed by Lawrence Rael with $58,000; Howie Morales, $22,000; Attorney General Gary King, $12,300; and Linda Lopez with $10,200.

The winner of the June 3 Democratic primary will face Martinez in November.
