Democrats nominate Judge Barbara Vigil for the NM Supreme Court

Today the Democratic Party’s Central Committee met in Albuquerque to choose the party’s nominee for the New Mexico Supreme Court seat that was vacated yesterday by Justice Serna.

The Committee eventually selected Chief Judge Barbara Vigil of the First Judicial District Court (which encompasses Santa Fe, Los Alamos, and Rio Arriba counties).  Congratulations to her!

Judge Vigil will face off against the Republican nominee, if any, in this November’s general election. ¬†I have heard that the Republicans will be meeting on September 8 to consider a possible nominee.
