You should bring up relocation in the beginning of the cover letter. The best way to bring this up is to make it sound as though you planned on moving to the new area anyway and simply want to get a new job lined up first. For example, you can state how you and your spouse are in the process of moving to this new state, and this open position is a great opportunity for you.
You can also bring up how you would relocate at the end. Every cover letter should end with how you would welcome the chance for an interview. You can mention how you will be in the area in the near future or how you would travel to the area at your own expense to interview in-person.
