Former NM Assistant District Atty. running for 3rd Congressional Dist.

Former Assistant State Attorney General Jon Adams wants to represent our area of Eastern New Mexico in the US Congress.

The democrat first planned to run for the 1st Congressional District, but withdrew.

He has now formally announced his plan to run for New Mexico's 3rd Congressional District.

Adams said he withdrew from the 1st district and opted for the 3rd district because he's from Los Alamos, which sits in the district.
