SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Candidates in a wide-open race for the Democratic nomination for governor are planning last-minute appeals to voters in Tuesday's primary election.

On the Democratic ballot are Attorney General Gary King, Santa Fe businessman Alan Webber, former government administrator Lawrence Rael and state Sens. Howie Morales and Linda Lopez.

Early voting ended Saturday, and polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The winner of the Democratic contest will challenge Republican Gov. Susana Martinez in the general election.

Martinez has $4 million in her re-election account, giving her a big fundraising advantage over the Democrats.

On the final day of campaigning, Democratic candidates plan events Monday targeting key voter groups such as senior citizens, who typically account for a large share of those casting primary election ballots.
