Democratic New Mexico State Auditor Tim Keller has wrestled control of New Mexico's largest city from the GOP to become Albuquerque's next mayor.

Unofficial results show Keller beating Republican Albuquerque City Councilor Dan Lewis with 62 percent of the vote compared to 38 percent on Tuesday.

Both were seeking to replace Republican Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry, who opted not to run for re-election after eight years.

Keller told supporters he would immediately start work on "rebuilding" trust between residents and the city's troubled police department. Albuquerque police are under federal court order to reform its department amid a high string of shootings.

3. We've had a Republican Governor

for 8 years. One of the worst in the country. New Mexico flirted with going red again, but learned a harsh lesson with 8 years of Susana Martinez. She has pretty much destroyed everything she touched.

Tim Keller is a breath of fresh air and the kiss of hope for a Democratic Governor next year.

11. NM is a purple state quickly turning blue

On my trip to Taos & Santa Fe this past summer the Dems candidates & their supporters were out in full display marching at the various parades throughout the state during the fiestas month of July, and Repug were nowhere in sight.
