On Sunday, Texas’ U.S. Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the election and the media’s continual urge to want to “coronate Joe Biden as the next president.”
Cruz mentioned New Mexico in the states that are being hotly contested for the presidential race, saying, “The American people get to elect our president. And, and at this point, we’ve got numerous states that are, that are very closely and vigorously contested from Pennsylvania to Georgia, to Arizona, to New Mexico, to Michigan, to Wisconsin.”
It is unclear if similar irregularities happened in New Mexico elections, as just minutes after the polls closed at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 3, Joe Biden was prematurely declared the winner of New Mexico, despite zero votes being counted yet.
There are multiple races that face recounts, including in the 13th Judicial District’s district attorney race where Democrat Barbara Romo and Republican Joshua Joe Jimenez are facing off for the seat with a razor-thin margin.
“The Sandoval County Clerk’s Office had around 700 additional ballots to tally up Tuesday that were not included in the totals on the Secretary of State’s website. Jimenez leads Romo by around 100 votes,” reports KOB 4.
As well, Republican former New Mexico state Rep. Ricky Little faces a recount where he leads Democrat Rep. Willie Madrid by a handful of votes in the 53rd House District. Madrid erroneously and without evidence claimed Otero County “wasn’t prepared” for the election, alleging voter suppression.
