Rep. Steve Pearce (R) “is seeking a federal court injunction to tap into $1 million in political contributions that he collected while in Congress to use in his run for governor. … The motion, filed late Thursday in federal court, seeks to block enforcement of limitations on campaign transfers from Pearce’s federal campaign account to a state one. Approval could give Pearce access to campaign cash while underlying issues are litigated.” (Albuquerque Journal)
