In an article with the Albuquerque Journal, Cook said he is running for re-election for the following reasons:[1]

  • Excerpt: "I’m running for office because I believe New Mexico’s best days are in front of it. While I’m proud of my record in the Legislature, there is still a lot to be done. I want to be part of the solution that makes our state No. 1 in jobs and economic growth. Part of that is improving our education system and giving our young people they skills they need to compete in today’s economy. This state is my home and I’m willing to do whatever I can to make it the best place to live for this and future generations."
