MORE POLITICAL SHAKE-UP

This just in:
Brian Egolf, who has been campaigning for 10 months for the Santa Fe state Senate seat currently held by Sen. John Grubesic, announced Saturday that he will instead run for the House seat currently represented by Peter Wirth — who late last week jumped into the state Senate race.

Egolf, 31, says he and Wirth — both Democrats and lawyers from Santa Fe’s east side — appeal to many of the same constituents.

“I believe that Santa Fe will be best served by having two strong progressive Democrats serving together in the legislature, not running against each other," Egolf said.

Grubesic announced earlier this month that he wouldn’t run for a second term for his District 25 seat.
