ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Democrats from every corner of New Mexico gathered in Albuquerque to cast their votes at the Pre-Primary Convention today in Albuquerque, New Mexico. U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-Albuquerque), earned more than 66% of the votes. Her name will appear first on the ballot in the June 5th Democratic primary.

The results were consistent with a poll released recently showing Congresswoman Lujan Grisham leading the crowded primary field with 72 percent of the vote.

"I am honored to have received such resounding support from Democrats across all of New Mexico," said Congresswoman Lujan Grisham. "I have been talking to working people in every corner of the state about the issues that matter most to them and their families, and I want them to know that i hear their voices and that I will fight for them. I'm running to ensure that all New Mexicans, no matter who you are or where you're from, have access to a quality education, affordable health care, and a good paying job. I am profoundly grateful to all my supporters who cast their vote of confidence in me today."
