Balderas Touts Momentum From Convention Results

March 12, 2012
"Momentum is on our side, and I just know that we are going to win this race," Heinrich added on his Facebook page. While Heinrich remains the frontrunner in the race, the convention results could provide a shot in the arm to Balderas' campaign. New Mexico political blogger Heath Haussamen said he expects Balderas to "start raising more money and gaining in the polls" as a result of his convention performance. His campaign is arguing that by exceeding expectations, Balderas served notice that Heinrich is no shoo-in for the primary. And they have a case to make: Balderas significantly outperformed his polling numbers, and his supporters put forth a greater display of enthusiasm than Heinrich's. That said, Balderas still faces a significant fundraising disadvantage. At the end of last year, Heinrich had more than $1.3 million in the bank compared to more than $400,000 for Balderas. If the convention boost can help him raise enough money to launch a TV ad campaign, he could narrow the gap with Heinrich and make the June 5 primary more competitive than originally expected.
