Anyone But Martin Chavez

Duke City Fix provides the evidence as to why the Democrats have to find ANYONE to run for the New Mexico Senate seat other than Albuquerque mayor Martin Chavez. This "Democrat," who was endorsed in his reelection campaign by the Bernalillo County Republican Party, took a gratuitous shot at Tom Udall this week, saying:

“Philosophically, he’s so far to the left,” “I’d rather not have him in the race, but that’s a challenge I’d not shy away from.”

Tom Udall is hardly a leftie. He's the kind of solid liberal that real Democrats like. Martin Chavez on the other hand is a Latino Joe Lieberman.

To make things worse, Chavez openly announed last year that he would endorse Pete Domenici if he chose to run for re-election.

Martin Chavez is awful. He is the worst kind of DLC Democrat. Literally, anyone the Democrats can come up with would be better.

And this is yet another reason that Tom Udall needs to run.
