ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — City Council President Dan Lewis might be the highest-ranking elected official at Donald Trump’s rally tonight.
Lewis, a Republican from the northern West Side, said he supports Trump’s presidential campaign but not “everything he does and says.”
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry and Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull, all Republicans, have said they won’t attend the rally. Berry is out of town.
Police are already closing off streets Downtown, and department heads at City Hall can send their employees home at 3:45 p.m. to avoid the congestion.
