April 27, 2018 – The 2018 elections are heating up, with primaries in just over a month. Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists look at updates in the race to be New Mexico’s next governor, from democratic candidate Jeff Apodaca’s hiring former candidate Peter DeBenedittis as a campaign spokesman for $4,000 a month to the role that the marijuana debate will play.  The Line also looks at a new poll conducted by The Tarrance Group on behalf of the Pearce for New Mexico campaign.
