This week on New Mexico in Focus, candidates for the state's 1st Congressional District continue to roll in as Republican Dan Lewis sits down to talk about his push for the conservative nomination.

KNME's one hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. The show can also be seen on KNME's Digital Channel 9.1 on Saturdays at 5 p.m.

Also this week, the Line examines the rise to prominence of Legacy Church in the state's political dialogue and the role its pastor, Steve Smothermon, has played in its ascendance, the promise of a self-sufficient Spaceport America and the safety of a building at Los Alamos National Lab that may cost more money to build than the state of N.M. spends in a year.
