President Barack Obama has nominated U.S. Attorney Ken Gonzales to a federal district court judgeship in New Mexico.
Gonzales’ nomination was among seven announced by the White House Wednesday. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Gonzales will replace retiring federal Judge Bruce Black of Santa Fe.
Gonzales was one of five candidates recommended to the president in September by New Mexico’s two U.S. senators.
Gonzales has served as U.S. attorney since 2010. Before that, he spent 11 years working as an assistant U.S. attorney.
He also is a major in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.
A graduate of the University of New Mexico law school, he began his legal career as a clerk for Joseph Baca, chief justice of the New Mexico Supreme Court.
U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall applauded the nomination of Gonzales.
