The idea that New Mexico should move its primary elections date to an even earlier time is being pushed by the GOP at the legislature. Why? Well because that way the Koch brothers and their 1% brethren can have more time to spend even more money on general elections. The idea that it would give New Mexico more national attention is just bullshit. (APD has fulfilled that job) It is meant to use American corporate power even more ruthlessly against our democracy. This bill is right up there with attempts by the fossil fuel boys and ranchers who insist that federal public lands are really state lands and should be turned over to them. Of course this will never happen but it does camouflage the real issues in Santa Fe.
