Wilson Still Not Ready to Jump in Gov Race.

Former Congresswoman Heather Wilson still hasn't decided whether she'll be running for governor, she just said in an interview on KUNM a few minutes ago.

Wilson probably would enter the race as a frontrunner on name recognition alone. She served 10 years in the House, representing the 1st Congressional District, which mainly consists of Albuquerque. She gave up that swing-district seat to run for U.S. Senate last year but lost to Steve Pearce in a hard-fought GOP primary where Pearce painted her as a "liberal."

Republican candidates so far include former GOP Chair Allen Weh, Las Cruces District Attorney Susana Martinez, State Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones and public-relations company owner Doug Turner.
