Quick political hits

Maggie updates:
NM political updates from around the web include:

  • Patricia Madrid is officially not running for House 01 again, meaning the race is likely firm with Martin Heinrich, Jon Adams, and Michelle Lujan Grisham vying for the Democratic opportunity to take on BernCo sherriff Darren White. Emily's List is backing Lujan Grisham's candidacy, which could throw big money and national support her way. Me? I remain a Martin girl.
  • Speaking of Martins, the other one in town is getting organized. The Marty for Senate campaign team is official, and as Democracy for New Mexico notes, it's not very ABQ-oriented. Wonder why?
  • The Draft Tom Udall effort continues, as Diane Denish seems content with running for governor... have you signed the Draft Udall petition yet? Or do you really want to have to choose between Marty and a Republican as your next Senator?
