The court next Tuesday will hear Jeff’s challenge of this week’s District Court ruling that she failed to submit enough signatures required to have her name on the June Democratic Party Primary ballot. A Santa Fe non-profit, Conservation Voters of New Mexico, is behind the effort to see Jeff’s legislative career terminated.

Or not enough of them. Jeff—from Crownpoint—needed 78 valid signatures, and turned-in 91, but Judge DePauli ruled 23 of them weren’t valid, meaning her re-election effort is over, at least for now.
