ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico candidate for state auditor is hoping some “Breaking Bad” references will put him into office.

Democrat Timothy Keller released Wednesday a campaign ad using the Albuquerque car wash from the hit AMC-TV series. Speaking in front of the car wash, the Harvard-educated Keller promises to fight fraud and waste.

An image of his opponent, Republican lawyer Robert Aragon, is then shown in front of a show’s trademark yellow cloud of methamphetamine with allegations that Aragon failed to pay his taxes.

A voiceover calls Keller “the clean choice.”

Aragon did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press.

“Breaking Bad,” which ended last year and was filmed in Albuquerque, followed former high school teacher Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston. White produced meth with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.
