SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Lt. Gov. John Sanchez has been named to the executive committee of a national group that helps elect Republican lieutenant governors.

Sanchez joins 11 other Republicans on the executive committee of the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association.

Sanchez, a former state legislator, has served as lieutenant governor since 2011. He was Gov. Susana Martinez’s running mate in the 2010 election.

The lieutenant governor presides over the state Senate when it’s in session and serves as acting governor when the governor is out of state. If a governor dies or resigns, the lieutenant governor assumes the job as the state’s chief executive.

Sanchez’s selection to the national group was announced last week.
