From the Albuquerque Journal web page: Baca Declares Victory By Carolene Langie The Associated Press Jim Baca declared victory Tuesday night in the seven-way race to become Albuquerque mayor. Baca was leading with 30 percent of the vote after 76 percent of the precincts reported totals. "I think people are ready for the message that we should keep the city livable and safe," he said. Baca was the only candidate who promised not to put a road through the Petroglyph National Monument to ease traffic on the city's West Side. "Some people saw this as a symbol for good managed growth and sensible growth," he said.
