ALBUQUERQUE – Mark Ronchetti leads the Republican primary field with 60% of the vote in a race with five candidates, with none of his opponents surpassing single digits. The gubernatorial candidate released polling data today that shows him crushing his primary opposition.

Ronchetti’s name ID and image rating show him well-positioned to win the primary and take on the incumbent governor. Fully 93% of primary voters know the Ronchetti name with 81% favorable and just 5% unfavorable.

Ronchetti officially filed his candidacy yesterday with twice as many signatures as necessary to earn a spot on the primary ballot outright. Ronchetti also raised $1.2 million in just two months, with 96% of that money coming from New Mexicans. More than 3,500 New Mexicans have contributed to Ronchetti, with 90% of those donating $250 or less.

In the primary for Governor, Republicans are coalescing behind Ronchetti’s campaign because they know he is the principled conservative who is best positioned to win in November. Another recent poll shows Ronchetti already tied in the race against Lujan Grisham among general election voters – 46% to 46%.
