2022 Election Preview: Polling Analysis & Candidate Conversations

This week on New Mexico in Focus the show’s series of Candidate Conversations expands to the Governor’s Office. Anthony Moreno from our Las Cruces sister station, KRWG, sits down with Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to talk about major issues on the minds of New Mexicans. Correspondent Gwyneth Doland also speaks with the Democratic challenger in District 2, Gabe Vasquez and asks what he would bring to Congress if chosen to represent New Mexico. 

Gene Grant and the Line Opinion Panel analyze the latest polling data in key statewide races. And Gene asks the panel if a last-minute campaign tactic could help either candidate for Governor claim any undecided voters. Plus, the panel takes a close look at our state’s three congressional races and considers which incumbent faces the highest risk of losing their seat in Washington.  

Senior Producer Lou DiVizio speaks with NM Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver about her efforts securing the votes of all New Mexicans leading up to election day on November 8.
