RIO RANCHO – Sandoval County Commissioner Jay Block jumped into the 2022 race for governor Saturday, becoming the first Republican to seek the nomination to challenge Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Block, an Air Force veteran from Rio Rancho, pitched himself as a strong new candidate who could successfully take on Lujan Grisham, in contrast to others who have repeatedly lost statewide races.
