Primary Election Preview, Analyzing Latinx Voting Trends & BQ Proposes Homeless Encampments

Election season is inching closer and Republican candidates for governor are ratcheting up their campaigns. Our Line Opinion Panelists will debate the political tactics of some of those candidates, and what the most recent round of campaign finance reports tell us about who could come out on top.

Correspondent Russell Contreras sits down with an expert on Latinx voting trends to talk about what we learned from 2020, and how it could translate into the 2022 primary season.

Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller has a new plan to consolidate homeless encampments into city-sanctioned areas. Our Line Opinion Panelists discuss the effectiveness of such a plan, and if there are any other solutions that could help keep people off the streets altogether.
