Federal election records show the Las Cruces Democrat pulled in $444,000 during her first three months in office after winning the seat in November.

Record show she had around $519,000 cash on hand. Republican Yvette Herrell, who lost to Torres Small last year and is seeking a rematch, raised $211,000 during the same period and reported having $285,000 cash on hand.

But to win the GOP nomination Herrell will have to go through Las Cruces businessman Chris Mathys who is also running.

Records show Mathys loaned his campaign $76,000 and had $67,000 cash on hand. No other candidates have declared for the seat.
