Gavin Clarkson, a former Trump Administration official and former candidate for Congress, has announced he will run for an open U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico.

Clarkson said Tuesday he will seek the Republican nomination in 2020 for Senate and will make immigration and "free speech on public campuses" his center issues.

He made his announcement in an interview with the conservative-leaning blog, NM Politics with John Block . Clarkson is the first Republican to say he will run for the state's open Senate spot.

U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján — the No. 4 ranked Democrat in Congress — said earlier this month he would seek the Democratic nomination. Democratic Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver says she's also considering running.
