As an irrelevant aside, one year there were three different Lujans running for office in Northern New Mexico. I can't remember the exact names, but all three of them also had Ben or Benjamin in their names. It was a confusing election....

Lujan is a very common name in New Mexico. Our new governor is Michelle Lujan Grisham. She kicked the crap out of her Republican opponent, Steve Pearce, who is a far right, Freedom Caucus horrible person. Pearce represented the Second Congressional District, a very red district, until his run for governor. In 2016, Trump won the district by 10.2 points and Steve Pearce (R) won by 25.5. Excellent to see Pearce on the sidelines! Miraculously, the Second Congressional District, as of yesterday, will be repped by a Democrat.

Also, too, so excellent to see Susanna La Tejana out of the Roundhouse.

All in all, this was a fine election year in New Mexico. :fiesta:

Oh, shoot. :bag: I need to get over the euphoria and also quit getting so much "info" from Twitter.
