He knocked off Ray Sanchez for a state house seat (Ray was sort of the Manny Aragon of the house, you just figured he’d die in office and still win another term).
They put him up against Richardson during the first race, and he got his head handed to him, he was just too green.
He ran for Lt. Gov this year and won, and he hasn’t seemed to be too visible. His relation is Gov. Martinez is unknown to me, but she hasn’t put him out front on anything that I have seen.
Although Wilson isn’t as conservative as I’d like, she’s got a much better chance than Sanchez (he’s got none IMO) and a ugly primary fight definitely benefits Heinrich the DIM. (although he’s got some good old boy challengers).
Thank you for filling me in.
It appears that, although Sanchez talks the conservative talk, he hasn’t been around long enough or tried enough to prove that he would be any improvement in that regard over Wilson.
It looks better to work on Wilson on some issues.
Or else, Club for Growth (who are backing Sanchez) will get the same result as they did in NY-23 and as you mentioned, putting a dim-bulb in the seat. We need to achieve a Republican Senate in the next election... badly.
