  • ELECTION 2020-NEW MEXICO

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The state canvassing board has certified Joe Biden's win in New Mexico, delivering the state's five electoral votes to the Democrat. Approval came Tuesday as the board met remotely amid the surging pandemic. Biden's victory without a campaign visit to New Mexico extended a string of victories for his party in a state where Democratic voters outnumber Republicans by 14 percentage points. However, Biden's margin of victory fell short of that margin because of significant Republican turnout in some parts of the state.

  • VIRUS OUTBREAK-LEGISLATURE

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico lawmakers considering a virus relief bill during a one-day legislative session called by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. The bill aims to inject about $350 million in direct economic aid for the unemployed, small businesses and emergency housing subsidies. For workers laid off during the pandemic, it would provide a $1,200 one-time payment to help hurting households.  Money may also be allocated for increased COVID-19 testing capacity to speed up results.
