We asked the four candidates for governor to talk about children — starting with their own upbringing.
We weren't looking for pro forma policy statements, though we got some of that. Rather, we wanted to understand how their formative years shaped their thinking about what we regard as the most critical issue confronting New Mexico. Here are their responses, with just minimal editing for style.
Start by clicking a candidate's picture to reveal the questions we asked. Click each question to expand and contract the response. Click the "start over" button to return to the beginning.
