Alan Webber to run for Governor

Alan Webber
Santa Fe businessman and former magazine publisher Alan Webber has joined the race for governor, becoming the fourth Democratic candidate to take on Republican incumbent Susana Martinez. 
Webber said Monday in an interview that he's entering the race because New Mexico faces problems in creating good jobs and providing a quality education to children. Webber said "it's going to take new leadership in the governor's office to turn those things around." 
The 65-year-old Webber co-founded the business magazine Fast Company in the 1990s and later sold it. 
Webber joins Attorney General Gary King and state Sens. Linda Lopez of Albuquerque and Howie Morales of Silver City in seeking the Democratic nomination.
