The New Mexico gubernatorial election of 2006 was a race for the Governor of New Mexico held on November 7, 2006. Incumbent Democratic Governor Bill Richardson was running for re-election. He faced Republican John Dendahl in the general election and won by a landslide.




  • John Dendahl – a former state Republican party chair and cross-country skier in the 1968 Olympic Games, Dendahl was appointed by the Republican State Central Committee to replace the withdrawn candidate, their original nominee, J.R. Damron — a first-time candidate who won the June 6 Republican primary, but withdrew from the race after he failed to gain traction in fundraising and in the polls. Dendahl headed the New Mexico Republicans from 1994 to 2003, after finishing third in a four-way primary for governor in 1994

Former candidates

  • James Damron – a physician with no prior political experience, Damron was unopposed in the primary, but withdrew from the race on June 17, 2006, due to a lack of fundraising.


Governor Bill Richardson's approval rating as of December 2006 was at 74%. [1]
