SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The number of candidates in the Santa Fe mayoral race has been whittled down to a field of three.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the latest candidate to drop out of the race is City Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger.
The remaining mayoral candidates are former Santa Fe County commissioner Javier Gonzales and City Councilors Patti Bushee and Bill Dimas.
The mayor's race will appear on the March 4 municipal ballot.
Neighborhood activist Josina Campos and motel clerk Michael D'Anna were disqualified earlier from the race, while former Santa Fe County manager Roman Abeyta and City Councilor Chris Rivera withdrew from the race.
