NM still in the running for Tesla factory

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The state says New Mexico is still in the running for Tesla’s massive battery factory.

Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela told lawmakers during a hearing Wednesday that the state is aggressively working to lure the plant here.

He says those efforts are being kept quiet at Tesla’s request and that New Mexico is still very much in the game.

New Mexico is up against four other states that are competing for the battery plant that could create 6,500 jobs.
