SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Two-fifths of the state legislators seeking re-election are unopposed this year.

Sixty of the 70 members of the state House of Representatives are running for another two-term term.

The Legislative Council Service reports that two dozen incumbents - 13 Democrats and 11 Republicans - face no primary or general election opponent from a major political party. That gives them a clear path to re-election unless a minor party or independent candidate files for office in June.

Twenty-seven incumbents - a dozen Democrats and 15 Republicans - have opposition only in the November general election.

Seven incumbents - six Democrats and one Republican - only have primary election opposition. Two members - one Democrat and one Republican - drew primary and general election opponents.

Democrats hold a 37-33 House majority.
