Valencia County voters swung red this year, voting in Republicans across the board for county level offices and judgeships.
The county electorate also favored Republicans in statewide races, such as the competition between incumbent Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and Republican Mark Ronchetti, with Lujan Grisham walking away with 10,065 votes to Ronchetti’s 14,744. The preliminary state-wide tally in the gubernatorial race gives Lujan Grisham the win for the state.
