Lujan Grisham will run for New Mexico’s First District congressional seat

Bernalillo County Commissioner Michelle Lujan Graham announced Tuesday she is running for the Democratic nomination in the 1st Congressional District.

“I’m running for Congress because we are under attack in this country,” Grisham said in remarks released to the media. “A band of right-wing radicals in Congress has hijacked our country and put the interests of their corporate masters ahead of the middle class, seniors and the most vulnerable among us.”

Grisham won a seat on the Board of County Commissioners in 2010. She came in third in the Democratic primary for the congressional seat in 2008, losing to Martin Heinrich, who is vacating the position to run for an open U.S. Senate seat. Former Gov. Bill Richardson appointed Grisham in 2004 as Health Secretary for New Mexico, a post she served until 2007. Prior to that, she was director of the New Mexico State Agency on Aging from 1991 to 2005. She is the niece of former Republican Rep. and Secretary of Interior under George H.W. Bush Manuel Lujan, Jr., and the granddaughter of former New Mexico Supreme Court Chief Justice Eugene Lujan.

Former Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chávez and State Sen. Eric Griego are also running for the Democratic nomation for the seat.

On the Republican side, former Albuquerque City Councilor Dan Lewis and former State Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones are running.
