When Sen. Pete Domenici formally announced he was retiring, the dominoes began to really fall. And the final result will not be good for the lab, let alone New Mexico.Soon after his announcement, First District Congresswoman Heather Wilson announced she would be seeking the Republican nomination for Domenici’s seat. That leaves her House seat open.Then Rep. Steve Pearce announced he was going to make a run primary for the Senate seat. That leaves his Second District House seat open.Finally, Rep. Tom Udall announced he was going to seek the Democratic nomination for the Senate seat being vacated by Domenici. That leaves his Third District House seat open.Have you gotten the picture yet? Not only are we going to have a new, freshman senator, we are going to have three, new, raw, freshman congressman.You thought getting anything for the lab or the state was hard before? Just wait for 2009!After Domenici announced he would retire in 2009 because of an incurable brain disease, Udall had said he would stay in the House. But – if you believe his staff – he reconsidered after a “groundswell” of encouragement from New Mexicans.Baloney. He ran because state and national Democratic leaders want this seat and knew that Martin Chavez could never win a statewide race.
