Rebecca "Becky" King-Spindle announced Saturday she will challenge Democrat Rep. Matthew McQueen of Santa Fe for a sprawling seat that covers four counties.

King-Spindle is the granddaughter of the late Democratic former Gov. Bruce King and the niece of former New Mexico Attorney General Gary King. Both Kings once held the seat.

The Moriarty, New Mexico, resident says she is running because politicians have politicized "everything from education to pork spending."

She currently is a Moriarty school board member and works as a rancher.
