ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Three seats on the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission were up for grabs Tuesday in New Mexico's primary, and none of the races featured an incumbent.
Land Commissioner Pat Lyons defeated former state legislator and retired magistrate Robert Corn of Roswell to win the Republican nomination for District 2 in southeastern and eastern New Mexico. Lyons could not run for land commissioner again because of term limits.
Theresa Becenti-Aguilar of Albuquerque, a former Native American liaison for the PRC, won a four-way race for the Democratic nomination in District 4 in northwestern New Mexico, where incumbent Democrat Carol Sloan was ineligible to run again because of felony convictions.
Sloan was placed on probation in May for aggravated battery and aggravated burglary convictions after hitting a woman whom she had accused of having an affair with her husband.
Becenti-Aguilar defeated certified public accountant Andrew Leo Lopez of Albuquerque, former Gallup Mayor George Galanis and Hank Hughes, who heads the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness.
