Pearce's campaign announced Monday that it had stockpiled $1.9 million in cash as of Sept. 3.

Pearce is competing with Democratic Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham in the November general election to replace Gov. Susana Martinez, who cannot run for re-election to a third consecutive term.

The Pearce campaign received $617,000 in direct contributions over the past two months. About $133,000 was transferred from Pearce's congressional campaign account to his campaign for governor.

The oil and natural gas industry figured prominently among supporters, with at least 20 contributions linked to companies or individuals affiliated with extractive industries.

Lujan Grisham says she has raised an additional $1.9 million in campaign funds since July 1.

Congresswoman and gubernatorial candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham on Monday said her campaign has about $1.3 million in cash on hand amid a spree of spending on television advertising ahead of the November general election. Complete campaign-finance filings were not immediately available.

Candidates for statewide office in New Mexico and the state House of Representative, along with political committees, were required to file reports of recent campaign contributions and spending on Monday before midnight.
