Challenger who nearly defeated speaker to seek re-election in New Mexico again in 2012

SANTA FE, New Mexico: In the 2010 state house election in New Mexico, Speaker of the House Ben Lujan, Sr. was nearly defeated in the Democratic Primary, winning by only 84 votes.[1] His opponent, Carl Trujillo, has announced he will once again seek election to District 46 of the New Mexico House of Representatives.[1]

Lujan has not yet declared whether he will seek re-election to a 19th term. The signature filing deadline for candidates is February 14, 2012. The primary takes place on June 5, 2012.[1]

Trujillo is the nephew of state representative Jim Trujillo (D).

Lujan said he will make his decision once the redistricting process is completed. Currently, the courts are holding hearings on maps. The legislature was unable to complete new maps during the 2011 session.
