ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Democrat Gary King has hired a new campaign manager for his general election bid against Republican Gov. Susana Martinez.

King announced Monday that day-to-day campaign operations will be managed by Steve Verzwyvelt (Ver-ZWEI-velt). He’s a native of Louisiana who’s worked on campaigns in other states for about a dozen years.

Verzwyvelt replaces Jim Farrell, who said he left the campaign at the end of the primary election to spend more time with his family in Las Cruces.

Verzwyvelt said this was his first race in New Mexico and he previously focused mostly on congressional campaigns.

Verzwyvelt said that before joining King’s campaign he was working on strategy for federal super PACs targeting U.S. Senate races in Louisiana, Arkansas and North Carolina.
