"Breaking Bad" actor Steven Michael Quezada is moving on to the general election for a commissioners' seat in New Mexico's most populous county.

Unofficial results show that Quezada edged out two other candidates in a close Democratic primary race for a spot on the Bernalillo County Commission.

In the final days of the race, Quezada got a public Hollywood push from comedian George Lopez and Emmy Award-winning actor and fellow "Breaking Bad" co-star Bryan Cranston. Both gave praising endorsements on Quezada mailers.

The 53-year-old Quezada now faces Republican Patricia Paiz in the general election.

Quezada played Drug Enforcement Administration agent Steven Gomez in the AMC-TV series "Breaking Bad."  The show was filmed in New Mexico and ended in 2013 amid a large following.
