The open southern New Mexico congressional district hasn’t generated a lot of national attention, but that could soon change. While previous polling had posted state Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-Alamogordo) to leads of between two and 14 points, the new Siena College/New York Times survey (9/13-18; 503 NM-2 likely voters) finds attorney Xochitl Torres-Small (D) now claiming a one- point lead, 46-45%. Earlier this week, the Albuquerque Journal released their poll that gave Ms. Herrell a 48-41% advantage.
