Wilson pulls $110,000 at Cheney fundraiser

Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) was expected to raise about $110,000 for her Senate campaign Thursday night at a Washington fundraiser with Vice President Dick Cheney, according to a source close to Wilson.

Wilson is one of four major candidates in the race to replace Sen. Pete Domenici (R-N.M.). She faces a primary with Rep. Steve Pearce, while Rep. Tom Udall and Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez are running on the Democratic side.

Wilson’s fundraiser, held at the Capitol Hill Club, was set to raise about half of the $110,000 from political action committees and half from personal contributions.

Wilson had about $750,000 cash in her campaign account at the end of September, which was more than Pearce ($580,000) but less than Udall ($800,000).
