Roswell Daily Record
Incumbent District 59 Representative Greg Nibert, a Republican, rebuffed a challenge from Libertarian Carl Swinney Tuesday.
As of just after 10 p.m., unofficial election results from the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office showed Nibert pulling in more than 76 percent of the vote, 7,846 to 2,365.
District 59 consists of much of western Chaves County and a large portion of Lincoln County.
Nibert, an attorney and former Chaves County commissioner, earlier this month told supporters in Roswell, “I believe my first job is to make sure that our liberty is protected and that government does not continue to erode the liberties that we enjoy today.”
