SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A district attorney running for the Democratic nomination to a U.S. House seat in northern New Mexico says Donald Trump's statements against four Democratic congresswomen show that Trump is unfit to serve as president.

Santa Fe-based prosecutor and congressional candidate Marco Serna issued a statement Tuesday condemning Trump for "relentless racist attacks against four women of color."

Trump's tweets urged the progressive women to "go back" to their "broken and crime-infested" countries, though three are U.S.-born. Trump insists the comments were not racist.

The tweets were directed at Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

Serna is running against a lengthy list primary contenders in a heavily Hispanic, Democratic district. Rep. Ben Ray Luján is running for Senate.
