Barela won’t run for CD1 seat
State Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela, who ran unsuccessfully for the 1st Congressional District seat in Congress in 2010, won’t try again this year.
Barela made the announcement Friday.
“This was a difficult decision, because there can be so much done on the federal level to improve the economy and the lives of Americans, but I feel this is the time for me to focus on working to make New Mexico the best place to do business so New Mexicans have the opportunity to be prosperous and achieve the American dream,” Barela was quoted by the Albuquerque Journal as saying.
