CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Republican Rep. Anna Crook is retiring after 20 years of serving in New Mexico's House of Representatives.
Crook announced Saturday that she would not run for re-election.
She plans to serve on her legislative committees until Dec. 31.
Crook represents District 64, which includes Clovis and Curry County.
Crook says it's been a wonderful experience but it's time to let someone else do it.
She counts pushing a 2011 bill that allowed farmers to sell irrigation water among her accomplishments.
Clovis City Commissioner Randy Crowder and Wade Lopez, a previous candidate, say they plan to seek the Republican nomination for her seat in the June 3 primary election.
