Jonathan Nez, Buu Nygren advance for Navajo presidency

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Voters from the Navajo Nation will see familiar faces in the tribe’s general election: their current president and a former vice presidential candidate, both of whom were on the ballot in 2018. President Jonathan Nez and Buu Nygren garnered the most votes in Tuesday’s primary among a field of 15. Whoever wins will oversee the largest Native American reservation in the U.S., and the second-highest tribal population. Both have talked about the need for economic development and extending running water and electricity to the thousands of Navajos without it. Where they differ is on the approach to moving through the coronavirus pandemic. The Navajo Nation once had one of the highest infection rates in the United States. Nez’s administration enacted tough measures to slow the spread. Movie theaters, restaurants, casinos and gyms still aren’t fully open yet, and a mask mandate remains.
