1. For the first mayoral run-off election in Albuquerque since 1993, State Auditor Tim Keller and City Councilor Dan Lewis are vying to be the city’s next mayor. KRQE political analyst Gabe Sanchez says that while polls show Keller ahead of Lewis by 18 percent, an upset is still possible. The latest poll numbers from the Albuquerque Journal show 13 percent of likely voters were still undecided. Sanchez says Lewis’ best bet is the city council seat run-off between Cynthia Borrego and Robert Aragon. Lewis used to hold that council seat so Sanchez says he should have a big following. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
2. The three teens who allegedly threatened to shoot up Santa Fe High School are expected in court. This comes after new details about a second threatening note has emerged. Last week police arrested the three students after classmates found a letter on the Santa Fe high campus targeting “several students” and “two teachers.” In a new police report released, investigators also found a similar note last week in an apartment complex parking lot on San Ignacio Road. The report does not say which school was targeted. The three teens are due before a judge at 8:30 a.m. in Santa Fe.
