I'm off work this week, but political junkie that I am, I'm still trying to keep up with what's going on in the political universe around here.
Tom Sharpe has a story in today's New Mexican about three new possible Democratic candidates jumping into -- or considering jumping into -- the Third Congressional District race.
There's Derrith Watchman-Moore, Teresa Ledger and Jon Adams, who apparently is dropping his bid for the First Congressional District race, renting an apartment in Santa Fe and running in CD 3.
Reports Sharpe, "Adams did not respond to messages seeking comment on his bid."
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but wouldn't it make sense if you want to switch districts and run for Congress you should return phone calls to the local paper? Call me crazy.
Speaking of phone calls, former State Rep. Patsy Trujillo called me tonight to say that she's not going to run for the Congressional seat and that she's supporting Public Regulation Commissioner Ben Ray Lujan for the nomination.
Back to "vacation" for me. There will be no Roundhouse Round-up this week, though I retain the right to make wisecracks from the sidelines.
