New Mexico Auditor

2014 Election

Keller announced in spring 2013 that he would seek the office of New Mexico State Auditor. During the election, Keller released a TV commercial that received national attention for being one of the most innovative and entertaining political ads of this cycle.[9] On November 4, 2014 Keller was elected State Auditor, defeating Robert Aragon, 54%-46%.

2017 Albuquerque Mayoral Campaign

In January 2017, Keller announced his intention to run in that year's Albuquerque mayoral election to fight for a safe, inclusive and innovative city. He stated that he would pursue public financing for his campaign by initially raising thousands of five-dollar donations, and pledged to expand the city's Police Department from around 850 officers to 1,200 if elected. Of the final eight candidates to make the Mayoral ballot, Keller was the only one to receive public financing, collecting nearly 6,000 five-dollar donations from the community, an impressive organizing feat. Keller would receive roughly $380,000 from the city to run his campaign, while his opponents would have no cap to the amount of money they could raise.

Throughout the course of the Election, Keller took part in multitudes of debates and forums, ranging from the standard televised debates for local channels, KRQE and KOB, as well as community based such as MIABQ's Forum for Young People, Young Professionals and Young Families, Dukes Up #RealTalk Forum and the Weekly Alibi's candidate Q&A.

On October 3, Keller topped the ballot with 39 percent of the vote, 16 percentage points ahead of the second-placed candidate, Republican Albuquerque City Councilman Dan Lewis, whom Keller would face in a runoff election in November.

Run-off Election: Seen as the front-runner, Keller continued to garner broad support from across the city, including endorsements from the Fraternal Order of Police, recognition for his bipartisan work as Auditor and Senator and his pragmatic vision for the city's future.

In the Albuquerque mayoral runoff election on November 14, 2017, Keller defeated Lewis with 62% of the vote. Keller resigned from his position as State Auditor on November 30, 2017.
