Elections, Elections, Elections

New Mexico voters had their say at the polls this week. Our Line Opinion Panel breaks down all the big winners and losers from Tuesday’s Primary Election. That includes Mark Ronchetti’s win as the Republican Nominee for Governor and Bernalillo County District Attorney Raul Torrez’s victory as Democratic Nominee for Attorney General. The Line Panel also looks ahead to the general election. Panelists explore Republican Nominee for Governor Mark Ronchetti’s chances at unseating Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham in November. Plus, what turnout numbers from the primary could indicate about voter enthusiasm.

Senior Producer Lou DiVizio also discusses the outcome of this week’s Primary Election, with Mario Jimenez of Common Cause New Mexico. The two talk about the impact of new election changes like same day voter registration and expanded use of absentee ballots. They also discuss the influence of money in this year’s midterm elections.
