Apodaca announced Sunday that he's endorsing Steve Pearce in the gubernatorial race.

Apodaca is a Democrat who was New Mexico's 24th governor and served from 1975-79.

He says Pearce "is the only candidate willing to reach out across party lines and work with both Democrats, Republicans and Independents."

Pearce and Democrat Michelle Lujan-Grisham are campaigning to replace Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, who cannot run for a third consecutive term in 2018.
