City Attorney Matt Sandoval announced Monday that he is running for district judge.
Sandoval, a former district attorney, said he is leaving his job at City Hall by week’s end. He said the Hatch Act would prevent him from engaging in a partisan campaign; that law applies to the federal government and entities that receive federal funds such as the city of Las Vegas.
The only other candidate to have announced so far is District Judge Gerald Baca, who was appointed by Gov. Bill Richardson to the newly created judgeship last year. Both are running as Democrats.
