Las Cruces activist eyes southern New Mexico Congress seat

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) – A Las Cruces activist and veteran says he is running for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District seat now held by Steve Pearce.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://goo.gl/rrUhJ4) that Tony Martinez announced this weekend he will seek the Democratic nomination for a seat Pearce may give up to run for New Mexico governor.

Martinez, a co-founder of the group WE’RE IN: Las Cruces Indivisible, says the outcome of the 2016 election compelled him to find a way to stand against Republican President Donald Trump and his policies.

Martinez is the second Democrat to announce his intention to enter the race. David Baake says he plans to run.

Pearce is reportedly considering vacating his House seat to run for governor in 2018.
