New Mexico’s primary day is often overlooked by national candidates since it comes on the very last possible day for primaries nationwide.
But this year is special because the Democratic nomination is still unsettled and the candidate will be selected based on delegates picked on our primary day – June 7th.
Even though there are a lot more delegates available in California and other states that day, neither the Clinton nor Sanders campaign are treating the Land of Enchantment like a flyover state this year.
Both campaigns are coming to NM this week and here’s where you can see them:
Friday May 20
- 3pm, Santa Fe Community College, William Witter Fitness Center: This event with Senator Sanders is limited to just 2,500 people. Doors open at 1, so get there early. More info here.
- 5pm, Albuquerque’s Civic Center: According to the Bernie website, Sen. Sanders himself will appear in the ABQ Civic Center, downtown, in ABQ at 5pm Friday afternoon. More info here.
May 24 & 25
- President Bill Clinton will be stumping for Sec. Hillary Clinton in ABQ and Española next week, according to our friends at the NM Political Report. Details are still scarce, but we’ll update them here as we get them (hint, hint for our Hillary friends).
In the interest of bi-partisanship, we’d also share any upcoming Trump visits to NM, but there aren’t any planned. If we hear of one, we’ll be sure to tell you where to come to bring your signs and join us to take a whack at one of those nifty Trump piñatas!
