Campaign Finance, Popular Vote, The Line

This week on New Mexico in Focus, correspondent Gwyneth Doland talks with Andrew Oxford of the Santa Fe New Mexican about money spent by special interest groups leading up to the November midterm elections.

Producer Sarah Gustavus sits down with the head of a national organization to learn about efforts to pass an interstate compact to move the country from the Electoral College to the popular vote in electing the leader of the United States. 

And Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists look at ways officials are tackling crime prevention, discuss the problems of recruiting and retaining faculty at the University of New Mexico, and debate whether voters will approve the state’s first independent ethics commission in November.
