The SOS just posted 8000 new votes so that now 99.2% of votes are counted. And Xochitl has won.
We flipped 7 NM House seats and lead in two more that are absurdly close. MLG, Stephanie, Supreme Court, Constitutional Amendments, all winners. Steve Fischmann all have won, as well.

Each month Trump’s message becomes more hateful and baseless, but this messaging is what left us stunned in 2016 and it foretells a truly terrifying 2020 campaign where any semblance of democracy is jeopardized. We need to send a clear message now. If you have been on the sidelines til now, get in the game…
Romero is opposed by a write-in candidate whose sole endorsement was just announced yesterday: the former GOP Chair and gas and oil magnate who wants the write-in candidate in the Roundhouse to advance GOP priorities. Please, please, don’t be fooled. This race is likely not over and Andrea Romero needs and deserves your vote.
Lots to share today. I can’t stress it more strongly: You need to take seriously the NM Environmental Department’s permit hearing on Nov 7. Details from Retake and TEWA within.
