In a game of political chairs, only one person will be seated in the Senate chair currently filled by Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., when the music stops after next year’s election. Party primaries will take place in June, and between now and then, Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez would like to convince Democrats that he brings better qualifications to the job of U.S. senator than Rep. Tom Udall, D-N.M., who currently leads in polling statewide.Chavez visited Los Alamos on the campaign trail Monday, where he spent the day talking to employees of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and “gauging the mood of people in the wake of last week’s announcement” by lab director Michael Anastasio that 500-750 jobs would be cut.“The mood runs from anger, to fear, to resignation, but what I’m really hearing people say is, ‘Let’s get it over with.’ The most difficult thing is not knowing,” Chavez said.

Domenici is that he’s been a great friend of local government.
