To conclde the 'Darkhorse' Walker Mum On 'Candidacy' Roy S. Walker of Clovis -• reportedly a "darkhorse" candidate for the governor in n e x t year's primary election-remained mum today about rumored efforts to boost his chances. Walker. Federal Housing Administration director in New- Mexico, said: "The Hatch Act is quite specific about any active campaigning by federal employes." He said he read the published report of his "darkhorse" candidacy and Clovis and statewide support he has been receiving. But he declined to comment in anyway about the report. Former Gov. John Rurrntichs of Portales and House Speaker Bruce King of Stanley arc front- runners in the Democratic ranks as possible successors to Gov Jack M Campbell. But Walker reportedly is the man mentioned most recently as the "darkhorse" candidate. He is rumored as the man with best outside chance of Retting on the primary ballot. Walker, 54. is a native of Clovis and has gained many contacts over the state through his work with the FHA - contacts which may prove invaluable should he run for governor Walker has said he "will do nothing to embarass the FHA or the Civil Service regulations" and adds. "I am very happy with . .... my position with the FHA at the ta Fe conduct present time " Walker ha., two vir^ r,,.
