Skip to comments.Popular meteorologist to run for US Senate in New Mexico
Posted on 01/07/2020 7:56:25 AM PST by CedarDave
Mark Ronchetti, a meteorologist in Albuquerque and one of the most popular television figures in the state, is joining the race for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, adding more drama to a contest some Democrats had believed was a safe seat.
Ronchetti, 46, announced Tuesday he is jumping into the fight for the GOP nomination after stepping down for his job Monday as chief meteorologist for the CBS affiliate in Albuquerque.
... Ronchetti said he was jumping into the race because he was fed up with politicians in Washington not solving problems. He called himself a proud conservative New Mexican and considers himself pro-life and pro-Second Amendment.
Ronchetti joins a crowded field for the GOP nomination that includes anti-abortion activist Elisa Martinez, shooting range owner Louie Sanchez, contractor Mick Rich, and college professor Gavin Clarkson.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján is running for the seat in the Democratic primary.

Good move. Like Trump I assume everyone knows who he is. Now he goes to work.Is he pretty? That counts-ask Hillary.
Yeah! I wish we had candidates that could get the pinko Senators out of Oregon!
I’d bet he doesn’t push Global Warming.
Saw one of his weather reports on youtube. Talks a lot with his hands. Smart. People pay less attention to what one’s saying when that happens. So how does he get past the whacko lefty voters in that state? I’d be ok if he was a rino or talked environment as long as he’s good with judges. Like Collins that’s the best we can hope for.
Yes he is popular - lots of fun on the air, always has some interesting shot or video before he goes into the weather which is why I turn to that station at 10 p.m. KRQE will miss him.
Yeah. Can’t hurt,
Good looking family
There are currently 4 (maybe 5) declared candidates for the GOP in the Senatorial race.
Mick Rich is the only one (before this) who stood a chance at all. Unfortunately (in this day and age) he is an older, rich white guy. He has already lost the general election once. Nice guy, but as exciting as dishwater.
Mark Ronchetti is a well known, young(er) good looking guy. He has a lot of name recognition.
Either guy is seriously more conservative than their potential opponent, Ben Ray Lujan.
Here’s Some campaign source print material NM candidates could use;

My nephew (he’s almost 30) is getting into politics - he’s very conservative and right now,he’s planning on doing some local stuff; website, newsletters, facebook, e-mails. BUT, he lives in CA in a blue area of San Diego area. I sure wish him luck. My sister says he’s on fire. Pray for him, everybody. We sure need more like him!
Sounds good, we need more like this to run for Congress in the 31 districts the Dem losers voted for impeachment.
Are you talking about Mark R???
He will have my vote!
Think I miss read your post! Sorry.
You seem to be speaking of another young man!
“Talks a lot with his hands”
I’m not sure but i think that is part of their training.
After all, he claims to be a meteorologist. Everyone knows that meteors are comprised of ice and stone, sometimes iron and nickel. And that they don't have kidneys.
So why would meteors need a urologist?
Yeah, his name is Corbin.
