SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe District Attorney Marco Serna has registered with federal election regulators to seek the Democratic nomination to Congress in New Mexico's 3rd District.

Serna spokesman James Hallinan said Tuesday that the prosecutor is planning a formal announcement by the end of May on whether to run for Congress in 2020.

Serna was elected to a four-year term as district attorney in 2016 for the state's First Judicial District.

An open race for the northern congressional seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján has attracted at least six registered contenders that include former CIA operative Valerie Plame, state Rep. Joseph Sanchez of Alcalde and Santa Fe-based attorney Teresa Leger.

Luján is running for Senate after Sen. Tom Udall announced he will not seek a third term in 2020.
