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.

Using his recently elected position as a stepping stone to another more prominent position leaves a bad taste in my mouth. IMO most Republicans in NM, including conservative ones want a winner in the Senate. I agree with Slim: Heather is more moderate than I like but has stellar credentials, is smart and if becomes a little more feisty can win the position back.

The only good thing I see about Sanchez entering the race is that it may cause Pearce to abandon any thoughts of re-entering the fray, which was a disaster for both him and the party last time.
