State significance

Republican candidate Mark Ronchetti is running against Democratic incumbent Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Grisham is favored to hold onto her seat that she won four years ago, according to FiveThirtyEight.

One of the prominent platforms Grisham is running on is protecting abortion access for New Mexico residents. Ronchetti, a Trump-loyal former TV meteorologist, is running on a public safety platform, as he attributes crime rates in New Mexico to Grisham.

New Mexico is a reliably blue state, having voted for the Democratic candidate in the last four presidential elections.

Counties are colored red or blue when the percent of expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
