ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — President Donald Trump has nominated a Santa Fe attorney to be the next U.S. Attorney for the state of New Mexico.
The White House announced Wednesday that Trump tapped John C. Anderson to serve as the federal government’s top prosecutor in the state.
The 42-year-old Anderson served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in New Mexico from 2008 to 2013.
If confirmed, Anderson would succeed Damon Martinez, who was forced out by Trump earlier this year along with dozens of other federal prosecutors.
