Dr. J.R. Damron, who won the 2006 Republican gubernatorial primary, will announce his canadidacy for lieutenant governor noon Tuesday at Santa Fe Imaging Center.
Damron ran unopposed in his primary for the governor nomination in 2006. But shortly after the primary, he withdrew as a candidate and the state GOP Central Committee nominated former state Republican Chairman John Dendahl to take his place. Dendahl went on to lose to incumbent Gov. Bill Richardson in a landslide. More about that HERE.
Damron will join former state Rep. Brian Moore in the GOP lieutenant governor primary.
