"With election season in full swing, it is vital to understand each candidate's vision of the future." Says Frances Vasquez, Chair of the Grant County Democratic Party.

The candidates include: Stephanie Garcia Richard (who is seeking the office of Land Commissioner), Karen Whitlock (candidate for State Representative District 38), two candidates for State Auditor- Bill McCamley and Brian Colon, plus Billy Garret and Howie Morales (who are running for Lt. Governor).
