SANTA FE (AP) — The winds of change continue to blow through the Capitol as the Legislature returns to work after voters put a Republican in the governor’s office and weakened the Democrats’ decades-long control of the House.
The Legislature convenes Tuesday and a leadership showdown looms in the House, where Speaker Ben Lujan of Santa Fe anticipates a challenge from Democrat Joseph Cervantes of Las Cruces.
The GOP is energized because the party picked up eight House seats in the general election and Republican Susana Martinez won the governorship.
One thing won’t be new this session. New Mexico continues to experience financial problems. Lawmakers must plug a hole in the state budget. They had to do the same last year.
