Democrats Briana Zamora, Kristina Bogardus, Jacqueline Medina and Megan Duffy unseated four Republican incumbent judges appointed in recent years by Gov. Susana Martinez, according to unofficial election results.
“Not only are we having the first female majority on the court, but it’s, I think, one of the strongest, if not the strongest, female majorities on any court in the country right now,” Duffy said. “We are now a court of eight out of ten women, and I don’t know that there’s any other court that looks like that.”
Unofficial results show each woman leading by between 8 and 15 percentage points.
