Democrat Brian Colon has been elected to serve as New Mexico’s next state auditor.

The Albuquerque attorney defeated Republican Wayne Johnson, who has served as auditor since 2017 when he was appointed to the post by Gov. Susana Martinez. Colon was able to significantly out-fundraise Johnson over the course of the campaign.

No stranger to politics, Colon once served as Democratic Party chairman. Winning the auditor’s seat ends a political drought for him. Colon ran unsuccessfully for lieutenant governor in 2010 and for Albuquerque mayor last year.

Colon has a finance degree and has represented business and governmental entities.
