Last night’s primary elections offered a few surprises and made history by officially granting Hillary Clinton enough delegates for the nomination for Democratic Presidential Candidate. In general, voter turnout was high statewide, about 33.74 percent, according the clerk’s office. Santa Fe had a turnout nearing 49 percent and the highest county was Mora with 52.6 percent. The lowest turnout was in Hidalgo county where a paltry 3.5 percent of registered voters made it to the polls.

As last night’s returns came in, Clinton was not the only woman to win; Liz Stephanics, Linda Trujillo and Anna Hansen also won. We spoke with both Stephanics and Anna Hansen this morning.
