Second gentleman to campaign in New Mexico ahead of special election

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff will visit Albuquerque Thursday.

Emhoff will be at a canvassing event in support of Melanie Stansbury, the Democratic CD-1 nominee.

The special election is on Tuesday, June 1.

There are four candidates vying for the seat: Democrat Melanie Stanbury, Republican Mark Moores, Libertarian Chris Manning, and Independent Aubrey Dunn. There are also two write-ins.

According to early numbers from the Secretary of State’s Office, CD-1 Democrats appear to be outvoting Republicans by more than double—almost 35,000 to 16,000.
