Breaking Bad star running for office

Breaking Bad actor and New Mexico native Steven Michael Quezada said he is running for a county commissioner seat in Albuquerque, where he grew up and the hit TV show was set.

Quezada, who grew up in a gang-plagued neighborhood and played DEA agent Steven Gomez in the now-concluded series, will run on the Democratic ticket for Bernallilo County District Two.

He said he wants to support not only public, but also charter, educational opportunities for all children in the district.
