Former Española Mayor Joseph Maestas has apparently won the Democratic Party nomination to the Public Regulation Commission’s District 3 seat in northern New Mexico.
Final results from Tuesday’s primary are still pending. But with total votes counted in 293 of the 434 precincts as of Friday afternoon, Maestas had 58% of the votes, making him the unofficial winner over lawyer Brian Harris, who has conceded defeat.
“It’s not official, but I believe the lead is pretty much insurmountable,” Maestas told the Journal.
