NM Races Are Set

Posted by DavidNYC

New Mexico's filing deadline was yesterday. I've written in the past about NM-01, where we have a top-tier matchup. We also have a candidate running against the Republican in NM-02, but this is a very GOP-leaning district (Bush 58-41 over Kerry). Rep. Tom Udall (NM's sole Democratic House member, in the 3rd CD) faces a challenge, but he's safe.

Similarly, Democratic Sen. Jeff Bingaman and Dem Gov. Bill Richardson will also be challenged but are both in very good shape. CQ has a good roundup on the entire NM scene.

March 21st is the deadline for all other offices, including 3 of the 5 seats on the powerful Public Regulation Commission.

I should have been more clear. As the CQ post explains, there are two deadlines.
