2022 Election Analysis & Los Alamos Plutonium Pit Production

This week on New Mexico in Focus, the Line Opinion Panel returns to the studio for in-person analysis of the 2022 election. Gene Grant asks our panelists how Gabe Vasquez was able to hold on to his slim lead in Congressional District 2. Plus, the panel debates the failures of Mark Ronchetti’s campaign for Governor. The Line Panelists round out their election discussion with a critique of the New Mexico Republican Party’s approach to other statewide races.

Our Land Senior Producer Laura Paskus interviews Greg Mello, executive director of the Los Alamos Study Group, about a new plan at LANL to expand production of a major component of nuclear weapons.
