Rep. Michelle Lu­jan Grisham (D) said in a brief in­ter­view on Wed­nes­day that busi­ness­man Jeff Apo­daca (D) will lack the “ex­per­i­ence” and “re­la­tion­ships with … key play­ers” to com­pete with her in the primary, noth­ing that he has “no plan” to grow jobs and that “he’s been gone from the state for 20 years.”

Lu­jan Grisham: “He’s gonna have, I think, a chal­lenge in cer­tainly meet­ing my ex­per­i­ence. I can demon­strate hav­ing an on the eco­nomy, hav­ing an im­pact on edu­ca­tion, hav­ing an im­pact in health care. … I don’t think he’s go­ing to be able to demon­strate that he would have any idea about what he would do to sus­tain a health care in­fra­struc­ture.” (Hot­line re­port­ing)
