ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Valerie Plame, a former spy whose identity was leaked to the press by the President George W. Bush Administration, is considering a run for an open U.S. Congressional seat in New Mexico.

The former CIA operative told The Associated Press on Friday she is meeting with New Mexico residents and will make a decision soon.

Plame says she'd be honored to represent the New Mexico district which represents northern and eastern New Mexico. It is currently held by Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Rey Lujan, who is stepping down to run for U.S. Senate.

Plame, a Democrat and critic of President Donald Trump, is the author of the memoir "Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House."

The book was made into a movie starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts.
