Marks was considering running for New Mexico Attorney General in 2014.[4] He suspended his campaign after an exploratory committee found that his chances of a win were slim with his current fundraising trends compared to the amounts being raised by other candidates. He posted an open letter on his campaign website where he explained the situation.
"After much consultation and consideration, it has become clear that the fundraising gap has put our campaign in a position where the prospects of winning are slim under most scenarios. It would be unfair to my friends and supporters - and to my family - to ask for continued commitments of time, money, and energy to the race under these circumstances. So, with disappointment, I am suspending my campaign for Attorney General."[2]
The general election took place November 4, 2014.
