InfoKing has spent more than 20 years in public office. He currently is chief financial officer for New Mexico State University's Alamogordo branch.

In a long career in politics, the 56-year-old King, the nephew of former Gov. Bruce King, has been state treasurer, state secretary of the Department of Finance and Administration and a state planning officer.

King changed his political affiliation in 1995, saying he differed with the Democratic platform on family and other issues.

In the 1980 general election for Congressional District 2, King was appointed by the state Democratic Central Committee to be its candidate after the death of primary winner Harold Runnels.

King was beaten by write-in Republican candidate Joe Skeen in the general election.

It was the third time in U.S. history a write-in candidate had won a congressional race.
