State Rep. Richard Vigil, D-Ribera, is leading his two opponents so far in fundraising.
Vigil has raised $8,000 in his bid for a sixth two-year term, more than half of which comes from out-of-district residents and groups. In his 2006 campaign, he raised three times that amount.
Vigil, who started with a balance of $3,600, has spend more than $9,000 so far.
Also running in District 70 are building contractor Travis Regensberg and Luna Community College employee Naomi Montoya.
