The state Democratic Party's Central Committee just elected Albuquerque lawyer Sam Bregman as the party's new chairman.
He defeated Roxanne Lara of Carlsbad by about a 2-1 margin.
On his Facebook page, Bregman said:
“The campaign is over. Our party is unified and ready to challenge Gov. Martinez and other Republicans. I congratulate the other candidates for bringing hard work and passion to our state party. The party will be focused like a laser beam on electing Democrats who will support good jobs and improve our economy,”
