ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Attorney General Gary King appears to have a slight edge among Democrats running for governor, according to a new Albuquerque Journal poll.
The newspaper reports more than a quarter of Democratic voters are still undecided as the primary election looms less than two weeks away, making the nomination a possibility for all five candidates.
The poll found King has a 6 point lead or 22 percent of the votes.
However, former government administrator Lawrence Rael and businessman Alan Webber are not far behind with 16 percent each.
Research & Polling Inc. conducted the poll through a statewide telephone survey earlier this month of 631 registered Democrats who said they'll likely vote June 3.
The winner will face Gov. Susanna Martinez, who has no opponent in the GOP primary.
