Today, New Mexico State Auditor Brian Colón announced his candidacy for State Attorney General. He hopes to follow the footsteps of former state auditor, now Attorney General Hector Balderas who is in his second term and term limited.

The former chairman of the New Mexico Democratic Party is now the first person to enter the race for the seat which has been primarily dominated by Democrats during the state’s 110 year history.

The General election will be in November 2022.
