SANTA FE — What sort of governor should New Mexicans try next? If you are a Republican, you have a very wide range of choices available on your June ballot.
When it comes to how each of the five GOP candidates would run state government, the differences couldn’t be more extreme.
Former GOP state chairman Allen Weh seems to be the front-runner. He has now sunk $1 million of his own money into the campaign; most of it for a very large TV buy.
Weh says he’ll take a no-nonsense, hard-nosed approach to running state government. He vows to take a baseball bat to Santa Fe to clean up governmental inefficiency and corruption. Not much doubt about how he’d run things, is there?
Doña Ana County District Attorney Susana Martinez says her 13 successful years running that office qualifies her to run state government. The word is that she is a tough boss. Some say even mean.
Despite Weh being the immediate past state GOP chairman, Martinez is reported to be the favorite of Republican officials. The fascination with Martinez goes all the way back to John Dendahl, state GOP chairman in the late ‘90s.
