NAMBÉ, N.M. (AP) — Democrat Ben Ray Luján has released his first television campaign ad in his bid for the U.S. Senate.
The ad scheduled to begin airing Tuesday highlights Luján’s role as an “11th generation New Mexican” and his desire to represent rural values.
The U.S. congressman doesn’t mention his GOP opponent Mark Ronchetti nor President Donald Trump.
Luján says his campaign will try to reach the state’s 33 counties through a virtual road trip.
The Santa Fe Democrat and former television weatherman Ronchetti are seeking to replace U.S. Sen. Tom Udall, who is retiring.
