Incumbent New Mexico Legislator Removed from Primary Ballot Due to Failing to File 78 Valid Signatures

On April 21, a New Mexico state representative was removed from the June 3 primary ballot, because a court determined that her petition lacked the required 78 valid signatures. Sandra Jeff, a Democrat, submitted 91 signatures, but her petition was challenged, and found to include only 68 valid signatures. See this story.

    Who are the other candidates that filed?

    • Jim Riley

      There are two other Democratic candidates.

      It is an extremely Democratic district 63% D, 17% R by registration. Ms. Jett had occasionally side with Republicans in the legislature, and drew primary opponents; as well as someone who wanted to knock her off the ballot.
