New Mexico: Week In Review (March 1 Edition)

Not quite as big a news roundup as last week. The start of the week was a bit slow, but the pace picked up near the end of the week.  Nothing as big as last week which featured the end of operations at the Albuquerque Tribune (still weird to walk by a newspaper machine at 3:00 in the afternoon and see a Journal staring out at you), but still some news happened.

Headlines

There were two Presidential match-up polls released this week for the state of New Mexico, and both showed Senator Barack Obama did better than Senator Hillary Clinton against Senator John McCain.  But both polls painted drastically different general election pictures.

NM-01: Domenici Retirement Fallout

With Pete Domenici's retirement, there has been a domino effect in New Mexico's political landscape.

A quick recap:  One of the members of the House (Heather Wilson) is running for Senate.  Another is considering a run for the Senate (Steve Pearce).  The news that the third (Tom Udall) wouldn't run was nearly front page news.  One Democratic gubernatorial candidate pulled out of the race for Governor to run for Senate (Martin Chavez), a second may soon follow (Diane Denish) and the current governor, also a Presidential candidate (Bill Richardson), may run as well.

Yesterday, I discussed who is in and out of the race for Domenici's seat in New Mexico.  Today, I will discuss the First Congressional District and how the race is looking at this early juncture.

Tomorrow, I will discuss how the race will affect the Second Congressional District (currently held by Steve Pearce).  Crossposted at New Mexico FBIHOP
