ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) — City Councilor Pat Davis announced Thursday he’s running for Congress. Davis announced his campaign for the Democratic seat being vacated by Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Davis says that he will not be caught standing on the sidelines while changes are being made by the Trump administration that he believes are impacting the progress we’ve made in our community.

“There are things we can do here in Albuquerque that are real important for our communities, but we also need folks that can take that fight to Washington and step up on a little bigger scale and help communicate those same fights there,” Davis said.

Antionette Sedillo Lopez is also running for the seat. She’s a former University of New Mexico law professor and associate dean. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
