Army veteran Tony Martinez (D) launched a bid for Rep. Steve Pearce’s (R) seat. “Martinez is the fourth Democrat to jump into the race as Pearce considers a run for governor. … Martinez enlisted in the U.S. Army and served on active duty from about 1981-91. He joined the U.S. Army Reserves and served in the Middle East during the Iraq War. Meanwhile, he rose through the pharmaceutical industry, retiring at the end of 2014 as a senior vice president at the drug manufacturer Endo.” (Santa Fe New Mexican)
