King beat out several other Democrat Party candidates during the primary election – Alan Webber who came in second, followed by Lawrence Rael, Howie Morales and Linda Lopez.
"We have five great candidates. I had a chance to meet with each one of them. They all want to address Native concerns, both urban and rural," said Mark Freeland, Diné, a spokesman for New Mexico's Native American Democratic Caucus, the day before the election.
In addition to the five candidates Freeland spoke about, there were also write-in candidates, Mario Martinez and Phillip Chavez.
