Two county clerks say they received loud, abusive phone calls on election night from New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna Duran and one of her top aides over the speed at which clerks processed returns for this week’s primary election.

Duran, a Republican who is seeking re-election this fall, on Tuesday night personally called the Rio Arriba County clerk, Moises Morales, to complain about not receiving results so they could be posted to the secretary of state’s election website.

    This is pathetic. The Santa Fe New Mexican ignores major stories while writing about a couple of people being yelled at. The poor dears. Is there an address where we can send flowers.

    And this is the second article in only a few days of someone being yelled. The New Mexican writes only a couple articles a day -- and we get this, Pathetic.
