Some Democrats had spoke of Lopez making another run for Lt. Gov., but if Soules is correct, Lopez would instead seek the top political office in the state.
Lopez serves as the chair of the Senate Rules Committee — and has notably feuded with the Fourth floor when they never voted on the confirmation of Public Education Department secretary-designate Hanna Skandera.
Senators are not up for election until 2016, so Lopez could run governor without giving up her Albuquerque state Senate seat.
Attorney General Gary King has already announced he is running for governor. Other Democrats are considering runs for governor.
#nmleg Martinez will NOT be the only Latina running for Gov.Sen Lopez IS running.Only one truly cares about NM and New Mexicans.
