The special election to fill the seat vacated by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland features two Albuquerque state legislators, Melanie Stansbury, a Democrat, and Mark Moores, a Republican. Mr. Moores has sought to overcome the heavily Democratic nature of the district by running with a near-singular focus on Albuquerque’s rising crime rate, while Ms. Stansbury has received a boost from visits by Jill Biden, the first lady, and Doug Emhoff, the second gentleman.
