Andrew "Andy" Nunez (b. November 30, 1935) is a former Independent member of the New Mexico House of Representatives, representing District 36 from 2001 to 2013.

On January 25, 2011, Nunez changed his partisan registration from Democratic to Independent. Nunez reportedly made the switch because he had been removed from his chairmanship of the Agriculture and Water Resources Committee, after refusing to support Ben Lujan, Sr. in his re-election to Speaker of the House. Lujan then selected a new chair, prompting Nunez's change.[1]

In August 2013, Nunez announced a new run for the state house, this time as a Republican, despite saying in 2011 that he "couldn't ever do that."[2]
