“Editorial: Selections for Supreme And Appeals Courts”

Earlier this week, the editors at the Albuquerque Journal issued their endorsements for the contested races in the New Mexico Supreme Court and New Mexico Court of Appeals, endorsing present Justice Paul Kennedy and present Judge J. Miles Hanisee, both of whom were appointed by Governor Martinez.

The paper also recommends that Justice Richard Bosson, as well as Judges Michael Vigil and Roderick Kennedy be retained.

My understanding is that judges up for retention must obtain 57% of the vote, though I don’t know why that is the magic number.  Can anyone enlighten me on this?
