Chasing Susana

-A A +A
By Hal Rhodes

On Tuesday last week in Silver City, state Sen. Howie Morales issued a press release making it known that, “I’m about to step on a stage at a rally in my hometown and announce that I’m running for Governor.”
It probably won’t appear on any of his campaign flyers, but Morales’ birth name is actually Henry Charles, and at age 40 he is the youngest of the candidates now seeking the 2014 Democratic nomination for governor.
The two other Democratic hopefuls are state Attorney General Gary King, 59, himself a former legislator, and longtime state Sen. Linda Lopez, 49, of Albuquerque’s South Valley.
A minor curiosity in this contest is that both Morales and King hold Ph.D.s, which, as best this reporter can determine, is a rare convergence that could make next year’s Democratic gubernatorial primary New Mexico’s first ever doctoral face-off.
In any case, if recent experience is any guide, Gary King should have the advantage in that race.
