Tribes Endorse Denish

New Mexico – The All Indian Pueblo Council is endorsing Democrat Diane Denish in New Mexico's race for governor.

The group of pueblo governors announced the endorsement on Friday.

Denish is running against Republican Susana Martinez.

The council is backing the re-election of New Mexico's three incumbent Democratic congressmen: Martin Heinrich, Harry Teague and Ben Ray Lujan.

The council supported Democrat Ray Powell for state land commissioner and the re-election of James Lewis as state treasurer and Hector Balderas as state auditor. Lewis and Balderas are Democrats.

The tribal leadership group made no endorsements in the races for attorney general and secretary of state.
