Johnson replaces Tim Keller, who left the post on Thursday to take office as Albuquerque mayor. Johnson also ran in the mayoral election this year.

Johnson is currently a Bernalillo County commissioner. He will serve out the remainder of Keller's term until the next general election.

"It is an honor to be appointed by Governor Martinez to serve our great state as Auditor,” he said. "The people of New Mexico deserve the best. I am more than ready to take on this challenge. Making sure we are holding the necessary agencies and people accountable is critical to maintaining public trust. I will not let my fellow New Mexicans down."
