Retired business executive and US Army veteran Tony Martinez announced his congressional candidacy, becoming the fifth Democrat to enter the party primary hoping to eventually challenge veteran Rep. Steve Pearce (R-Hobbs). None of the five candidates have elective office experience, but the race has become potentially attractive because Mr. Pearce may enter the open Governor’s campaign. Therefore, we see the large Democratic field forming in anticipation of such a move. Should the Congressman opt for re-election, he will be in strong position to win yet again.
