HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - Republican Yvette Herrell promises a different campaign against Democratic Congresswoman Xochitl (ZOH'-cheel) Torres Small in 2020 after facing criticism for avoiding debates.

Herrell, who lost to Torres Small in 2018, told the Hobbs News-Sun she has hired New Mexico consultants and plans to debate the Democrat.

Herrell is seeking the GOP nomination for a rematch with Torres Small. But she will have to first defeat fellow Republican Chris Mathys, a Las Cruces businessman.

The former state lawmaker faced criticism during the 2018 race for refusing to participate in any televised debates against Torres Small in what was a closely watched contest in southern New Mexico.

Herrell says scheduling conflicts prevented her from participating in debates but television stations said Herrell never gave alternative dates.
