Editorial: Candidate interviews start

April 6, 2018 GMT

New Mexico’s June 5 Democratic, Republican and Libertarian primaries are just around the corner, with absentee voting starting May 8 and early voting May 19. The Journal plans to publish its endorsements for contested statewide and Albuquerque-area offices as voting begins. Candidates in those contested races who would like to meet with members of the editorial board before endorsements are published should contact editorial page editor D’Val Westphal at 823-3858 or via email at dwestphal@abqjournal.com. Please include contact phone numbers. Interviews can be scheduled Mondays through Thursdays at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. This editorial first appeared in the Albuquerque Journal. It was written by members of the editorial board and is unsigned as it represents the opinion of the newspaper rather than the writers.
