Working on some high profile things for Susana Martinez would really establish his credentials and visibility, and he’s already got the job!
Heather’s a bit more moderate than I like, but she’s great on defense and veterans issues, very responsive to constituents and smart. Also knows Washington and it’s pitfalls. I think she’d make a decent Senator, sort of like Domenici was.
I do think that if elected, Sanchez would have a good voting record. But I also think that running for the Senate just three months after being elected to his currnet office could be a liability. Also, it’s not clear how much strength he has electorally.
