Last week I offered up some post-election tidbits based on the results of the June 5 primary elections, but I saved this one for a column of its own. Put into context, it’s much bigger than a tidbit.
Two primary elections resulted in the defeat of two Vigils from the Valley. Richard Vigil, a state representative since 1999, was beaten by Tomás Salazar, who received 56 percent of the vote. Rep. Vigil will serve out his term and Salazar is poised to take his place in January 2013.
