One week later, NM Dems finally release convention results

One week after Democrats’ “lovefest” convention in Roswell, they finally have the results from the contentious races. This came after the Democrats employed the use of absentee ballots, over-the-phone voting, and electronic voting which allowed votes days after the convention.

In the Second Congressional District, far-left ex-Las Cruces City Councilor Gabe Vasquez outpaced Dashel Patel 80.43% to 19.57%. Patel was just shy of the 20% needed to get on the ballot but could get extra signatures to get a ballot slot.

In the state treasurer race, Laura Montoya got 58.29% to Heather Benavidez’s 41.71%. The nominee will face Republican Harry Montoya in the general election.

Zack Quintero, who previously ran an unsuccessful race for Albuquerque City Council, got 61.81% to Joseph Maestas’ 38.19%. Maestas is a Public Regulation commissioner and former Santa Fe city councilor. 

In the hotly contested attorney general race, ​​state auditor Brian Colón led Albuqurque-area District Attorney Raúl Torres 61.46% to 38.54%. Torres has support from George Soros. The winner will face Republican Jeremy Gay. 

The governor’s race, lt. governor’s race, Congressional Districts One and Three, Secretary of State, and Land Commission are uncontested on the Democrat side. Republicans have not put up a candidate for state auditor. But they have put up a candidate, Jeff Byrd, for Land Commission.

Whoever the Democrats choose on June 7 as their nominees will face Republicans, who have been rallying to take back New Mexico with a strong showing across the state.

In contrast to the Republican convention, the GOP had primary results the night of the convention, which were released the day afterward.
