Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver has announced she will, again, seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for secretary of state.
She ran for the post two years ago, but she was defeated by Republican incumbent Dianna Duran, who resigned in 2015 after pleading guilty to using campaign donations to gamble at the casino.
Gov. Susana Martinez appointed Republican Brad Winter to the post. He says he does not plan to run for the position.
Toulouse Oliver has been Bernalillo County Clerk since 2007.
