New Mexico Republican Steve Pearce will attempt to reclaim the U.S. House seat he used to hold.

Pearce on Monday announced that he will challenge Democratic Rep. Harry Teague , who was elected last November to represent the state’s 2nd District, a 69,000-square-mile expanse of southern New Mexico that takes in Las Cruces and Roswell.  

It’s not a rematch.
