SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Democrat Ray Powell is running again for New Mexico state land commissioner, an office he’s held twice before.

A statement released Monday morning by Powell says he planned to announce his candidacy at an environmental justice rally at the State Capitol in Santa Fe.

Powell served as commissioner from 1993-2002 and again from 2011-2014, when he narrowly lost the 2014 general election to Republican Aubrey Dunn.

The land commissioner oversees management of 13 million mineral acres and 9 million surface acres.
