NM legislator files as write-in candidate

NM legislator loses appeal, fails to get on ballot

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Democratic Rep. Sandra Jeff of Crownpoint has filed to run as a write-in candidate in the November general election for her northwestern New Mexico legislative district.

Jeff lost a court fight to appear on the primary election ballot and had vowed to wage a write-in candidacy.

She was among several write-in, independent and minor parties candidates who filed Thursday with the secretary of state’s office.

Jeff is running against Democrat Doreen Johnson of Gallup. There’s no Republican in the race.

Two independent candidates filed in Albuquerque legislative races.

Robert Schiller is challenging Democrat G. Andres Romero. The winner will replace Democratic Rep. Henry Kiki Saavedra, who’s retiring. There’s no Republican candidate.

William Pratt is running against Republican Rep. Larry Larranaga. There’s no Democratic candidate.
