Fourth Republican entering U.S. Senate race (NM, To replace retiring Dem)
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | January 5, 2020 | Scott Turner

Posted on 01/05/2020 4:47:16 PM PST by CedarDave

Businessman Louie Sanchez remembers growing up in a trailer in the South Valley where he said he learned the value of hard work. It’s those working class roots he wants to emphasize when he launches a bid for the U.S. Senate on Monday.

Sanchez will join a growing Republican field that includes former New Mexico State University professor Gavin Clarkson; anti-abortion advocate Elisa Martinez; and Albuquerque contractor Mick Rich in the race to replace Democrat Tom Udall, who is not seeking reelection to a third term. U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján and accountant Andrew Perkins are seeking the Democratic nomination.

He said New Mexicans wanted representatives in Congress “who remember their roots, who remember where they came from.”

Don’t know. NM has had two Dem senators, both radical Dims, since Pete Domenici retired in 2009.

That depends on the odds of the Democrats running a libertarian candidate to split the Republican ticket.

Martinez left office with high disapprovals. She’s not going to be running for anything again. Johnson is a joke.

But NOONE, no-one is running against the lying obamaumaorobot— Evelyn Farkas (yes the DOD— self confessing Trump spy girl) who is running unopposed for NY 17 (Nita Lowey is stepping down after decades of moronity). Someone SHOULD run against her— and provide the Burisma photos of her in Burisma corporate jacket. She is a whore- to say the least, and obamabot sychophant— arrogant as hell. Check her twitter bs.

I would say higher than that.
New Mexico has had Republican Governors (yes I realize that the correlation between US Senate and US President is higher than that between Governor and US President) but for the Harris seat (and Feinstein as I recall), an R didn’t even make the runoff.
