ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Another Democrat is throwing his hat in the ring to be New Mexico's next lieutenant governor.


Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzalez announced his bid on Saturday, just three months after announcing he would not seek re-election to remain the mayor of the state's capital city.

Gonzales joins a crowded Democratic field that includes Sen. Howie Morales, Eagles Nest resident Jeff Carr, Doña Ana County Commissioner Billy Garrett, former House Majority Leader Rick Miera and David McTeigue, a juvenile probation officer from Rio Rancho.

There's only one Republication currently seeking the position – former police officer Michelle Garcia Holmes.
