  SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is considering the endorsement of a presidential candidate from her party and says she wants a leader who can bridge political divides and get things done. Lujan Grisham said Wednesday that she has been approached by three candidates who remain in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Albuquerque-based U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland has actively campaigned for Elizabeth Warren, while the rest of the congressional delegation is wary of choosing. The delegation and governor could be called on to vote as automatic super delegates at the Democratic national convention if no presidential candidate wins a majority of pledged delegates.
