2ND CONGRESSIONAL RACE GOES TO COURT

The 2nd Congressional District race continues, as a judge in Dona Ana County earlier today heard arguments from Yvette Harrell’s attorneys, who are asking the court to order state police to take control of the 8,000 absentee ballots that were cast in that county. The judge said that he will give the Secretary of State’s Office time to finish the tally to give parties involved enough time to draft an order of impoundment that is agreeable to all sides. Herrell filed a lawsuit after the Secretary of State declared Xochitl Torres Small the winner in the race one day after the election. The Republican Party of New Mexico has said that there is a responsibility to look into the integrity of the election.
