Brett Kokinadis has announced he will now run for the district 1 seat currently held by Democrat Deb Haaland. He says it's important to have  strong candidates in each race.

Kokinadis, a longtime Democrat, first made headlines in April when he announced he would run in the district 3 race as a Republican.

The three remaining candidates in the run for Ben Ray Lujan's district 3 seat are current Santa Fe District Attorney Marco Serna, former CIA operative Valerie Plame, and attorney Teresa Leger Fernandez.

Lujan is running for a seat in the Senate.
