THE POLITICS KEEP COMING

I was the "staff" in a couple of "Staff & Wire Reports" stories in today's New Mexican.

In the article about U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce entering the Republican primary, runn ing against U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson, I added the part about U.S. Rep. Tom Udall being pressured to reconsider his decision not to run in the Democratic Senate primary. The source I quoted is betting that Udall doesn't run for Senate. Another source said Udall began reconsidering after talking to Gov. Bill Richardson in New Hampshire over the weekend. Udall was in Manchester to speak at a global warming conference. Richardson reportedly assured Udall that he would definitely not run for Senate, even if his presidential race folded by the filing day for Senate.

The Pearce article also has my confirmation from former Attorney General Patricia Madrid will not be running for U.S. Senate, though she hasn't ruled out a House race.

In the article about Richardson''s contributors, I just added a few names to the Associated Press story, including some gaming tribes from outside the state that contributed to Richardson.

I also have an article about the fact that once again, New Mexico has flunked in a national study of campaign finance disclosure laws. Oh well, like our legislative leaders have told us, it's not politicians who need disclosure laws, it's the media and those do-gooder groups. Oh well, you can find the study HERE.
