On Tuesday, New Mexico's Attorney General Gary King won the Democrat Party's nomination for governor putting him up against Republican candidate Gov. Susana Martinez, who is seeking her second term.

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.
