If you need a friend in politics....get a cat. Right now that would be good advice for the Democratic Lt. Governor candidates here in New Mexico. Blogger Joe Monahan did a poll this morning that really shows that after a full year of campaigning the race is still a standoff. So the knives will come out. That is probably bad news for Brian Colon, but good news for Lawrence Rael. The undecideds are still in control of this race.
I actually like all of the candidates. Rael and Jerry Ortiz Y Pino both worked for me when I was Mayor of Albuquerque. They are both decent and honest people and either one of them would make good light govs. Jerry is probably closer to me in terms of political philosophy, but Lawrence would bring a moderate view to the office. So, what is one to do?
