First-term Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) drew her second Republican challenger last week. New Mexico retired National Guard general and investment advisor and commentator Greg Zanetti, who has twice run for statewide office, declared his gubernatorial candidacy. He joins Sandoval County Commissioner Jay Block in the GOP primary field.
While Gov. Grisham is the heavy favorite for re-election opposite the current candidate field, other potential contenders such as former Congressman and current New Mexico Republican Party chairman Steve Pearce and Albuquerque television weatherman and 2020 US Senate candidate Mark Ronchetti remain as possible candidates.
