Domenici, who like his father is a Republican, has been “contemplating a run since before the holiday season,” the Journal article states.
“I’m looking very seriously at it,” the Journal quoted him as saying. “I’m going to make my decision in a few days.”
The paper reports Domenici Jr, who has not run for political office before, does not have a campaign exploratory committe and has not rasied any money for the possible race.
If he decides to run he'll face Albuquerque business owners Allen Weh and Doug Turner, state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones, and Doña Ana CountyDistrict Attorney Susana Martinez.
The state GOP pre-primary nominating convention is scheduled for March 13th, at the Albuquerque Hilton. Candidate's have get 20 percent of the delegates vote for an automatic ballot position.
Democrat Lt. Governor Diane Denish is running unopposed in her party's primary.
