Message type: mailer
Message tone: contrast
About the message: This mailer from Republican Senate candidate Candace Gould emphasizes her experience as a small-business owner and says her Democratic opponent David Simon "doesn't care about jobs." Gould and Simon are competing for the Senate District 10 seat to replace outgoing state Sen. John Ryan, a Republican.
The messenger's money: Gould is paying McCleskey Media Strategies for her printing and mailing services. That firm is owned by Jay McCleskey, adviser to GOP Gov. Susana Martinez, and it also does work for Susana PAC and the super PAC Advance New Mexico Now.
