SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The Republican candidate for governor of New Mexico is clarifying a twitter post that inaccurately said he attended a luncheon for educators in central New Mexico.

U.S. Rep. and congressional candidate Steve Pearce tweeted Monday that a representative of his congressional office attended the luncheon in Belen last week while the congressman was campaigning elsewhere in the state. Pearce described his proud support for educators in the clarification.

State Democratic Party Chairwoman Marg Elliston says that the original tweet was dishonest because Pearce was campaigning far away in Farmington and stressed the importance of accountability on education issues.

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