NM Supreme Court lifts stay, allows recount to continue in Land Commissioner’s race

On Wednesday, the New Mexico Supreme Court denied a petition by the incumbent Commissioner of Public Lands, Ray Powell, challenging the procedures being used to recount the votes in that closely-contested race.

The Supreme Court also lifted a stay it had imposed, and the recount has now resumed. According to this report by Deborah Baker in the Albuquerque Journal, results are expected next week.

The Republican challenger, Aubrey Dunn, presently holds a slim, 700-vote lead over Powell.
