R.I.P. Errol Chavez

Senate Republican leader Stuart Ingle just announced on the floor that Errol Chavez, who was last year's Republican candidate for state auditor, died last night.

Chavez, a retired Drug Enforcement Administration agent and former regional director of the New Mexico High Intensity Drag Trafficking Area, died of brain cancer, Ingle said.

Chavez was diagnosed with a brain tumor about a month before the election.
