SANTA FE, N.M. — Incumbent Democrat U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan will have a challenger.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (http://bit.ly/u6pbRJ) that Rick Newton, a Taos businessman whose career includes high-profile deep-sea recovery projects, is slated Tuesday to formally announce that he will challenge Lujan as Republican.

According to his campaign website and campaign material, Newton was involved in the recovery of a nuclear-powered Soviet submarine in the Pacific Ocean and other underseas projects.

Newton says he wants to amend the Constitution to prohibit Islamic Shariah law and change the 14th Amendment to prevent children of illegal immigrants at becoming U.S. citizens.

Lujan is serving his second term in Congress representing NorthernNew Mexico‘s 3rd Congressional District. Newton will be his first declared challenger, Republican or Democrat, in the 2012 race.
