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.
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.

We interrupt your arguing about the Presidential primaries to tell you about some other important primary races.
Yesterday was the filing deadline in New Mexico. So today, we definitively know who is running for the Senate, First Congressional District, Second Congressional District and Third Congressional District seats on for both the Democratic and Republican nominations.
And every single seat has at least one competitive primary for a very simple reason: All three House seats in New Mexico and a Senate seat are all open seats without an incumbent running. Crazy times in New Mexico.
So the final, definitive edition of Who's Running in New Mexico for 2008, and a little bit of analysis, is below the fold:
