Lujan Grisham builds profile as Biden looks to make VP pick
(AP Photo/Craig Fritz, File)SANTA FE, N.M. Michelle Lujan Grisham has not received the attention of many higher-profile candidates under consideration to be Joe Biden's running mate. The New Mexico governor has executive experience and served in the U.S. House and as her state's health secretary. But as Biden prepares to make a vice presidential pick as soon as next week, Lujan Grisham is at risk of being shadowed by more prominent contenders, including Sens. Lujan Grisham is undeterred, pledging to help Biden in any way and making the case that Latinos could decide the election. The Latino and Hispanic vote will be essential, Lujan Grisham said last week at a fundraiser for Biden.
