ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The outcome of the 2020 election was the main topic during a special edition of “Your Local Election Headquarters” on Friday, Nov. 6. More than 921,000 cast ballots are helping reshape the balance of power in the New Mexico Roundhouse and the state’s federal representation.
KRQE News 13’s Chris McKee alongside KRQE Political Analyst Gabe Sanchez broke down the wins, losses, surprises, and outcomes from Tuesday’s election. Among the topics for Friday’s show, Chris and Gabe discussed what’s next for Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration with some of the changes in the Roundhouse. The New Mexico Senate saw several districts flip both Republicans and Democrats.
Chris and Gabe also took a closer look at the new make-up of New Mexico’s shifting Congressional delegation. One Republican and four Democrats will go to Washington D.C. to represent the state which was entirely represented by Democrats for the last two years.
