ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Voters in New Mexico's largest city are set to choose its next mayor amid concerns about crime and the economy. Democrat Tim Keller is facing Republican Dan Lewis in a runoff Monday, a day after a city ethics board ruled Keller violated campaign finance laws during the race. The board did not issue any sanctions against Keller. The election comes a week after Democrats won governorships and legislative seats in Virginia and New Jersey and took mayoral seats in places like Helena, Montana.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — An attorney says former New Mexico state Sen. Phil Griego plans to testify at his own trial, as a jury considers corruption charges including fraud and bribery. Defense attorney Thomas Clark says he anticipates that Griego will speak in his own defense Tuesday as a final witness, as the trial enters its third week. The New Mexico attorney general's office alleges that Griego used his position as a lawmaker to profit from the sale of a state-owned building. Griego has pleaded not guilty to eight charges.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's public safety and judicial officials are seeking budget increases for the next fiscal year as crime rates remain high.

Committee officials noted that New Mexico in 2016 had the second highest rate for violent crime in the Unites States and the highest property crime rate among states. The state's overall crime rate also has exceeded the regional average for almost a decade.
