Gov. Diane Denish, the presumptive Democratic nominee for governor in November, have known each other for more than 10 years, and Hindery contributed $50,000 to her campaigns in 2006 and 2007.    Hindery also contributed more than $25,000 to Gov. Bill Richardson in December 2005 and another $25,000 in September 2006..  But Hindery had interests here beyond financial support of the two prominent Democrats.   His InterMedia VII fund landed a $30 million deal from the State Investment Council in May 2006 for a fund that buys media companies, consolidates assets, then sells the companies when they begin to grow. On its face, those facts don't present an obvious political opportunity for Republicans to use in their relentless campaign to tie Denish to Richardson and the ongoing state investment scandals. https://www.abqjournal.com/news/state/182332446355newsstate01-18-10.htm?splashtop The Daily Beast:  The devil’s drug the true story of meth in new mexico (08/24/2013) http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08/24/the-devil-s-drug-the-true-story-of-meth-in-new-mexico.html El Paso TImes: Dozen convicted New Mexico drug rign (10/11/2016) http://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/crime/2016/10/11/dozen-convicted-new-mexico-drug-ring/91869848/ Forbes: (01/20/2009) Drug Cities including in New Mexico (01/20/2009) https://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcome/?toURL=https://www.forbes.com/2009/01/20/narcotics-heroin-cocaine-biz-beltway- cz_nv_0121drugcities.html&refURL=https://www.google.com/&referrer=https://www.google.com/ Governors Org.
