Election 2020: U.S. Senate Debate

Oct 20, 2020

It’s a historic race for the U.S. Senate this year in New Mexico. Tom Udall announced in March of 2019 that he would not be running again in 2020, bringing an apparent end to a decades-long career of public service. Running to replace Senator Udall are current U.S. Representative Ben Ray Lujan (Democrat) as well as former KRQE Meteorologist Mark Ronchetti (Republican) and nuclear scientist Bob Walsh (Libertarian). New Mexico in Focus host Gene Grant moderates a debate between the candidates as they tackle their stance on policy issues ranging from the economy, to health care, education and climate change.
