SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Democratic state Rep. Joseph Sanchez of Alcalde says he plans to run for an open U.S. congressional seat representing northern New Mexico in 2020.

Sanchez made the announcement Monday on Twitter after U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján of Nambé indicated he will run for Senate in 2020 to succeed Sen. Tom Udall. Luján and Udall are Democrats.

An electrical engineer by trade, Sanchez says he wants to improve the quality of life in northern New Mexico in areas of public health, economic development and human rights.

Udall announced last week that he won't seek a third term in office.
