He counts 10 years’ experience in Congress working with Sen. Pete Domenici and a 68-percent majority of the vote from the Republican pre-nominating convention in March.
Santa Fe lawyer Marco Gonzalez has some definite ideas about how his staff’s work in Washington can help fill at least one of the holes in New Mexico’s congressional delegation next year.
“New Mexico can ill afford to send somebody to Congress who can’t hit the ground running,” he said. “I can be effective within the framework of authorizing and funding programs.”
He said he knows how hard it is to get acclimated to Capitol politics, because it took him five years before he had a handle on it.
Without that kind of preparation, “You’ll get spun around like a top up there,” he said. “The way you get an appropriation is by understanding the process.”
Gonzalez is running against Dan East, a Rio Rancho businessman for the Republican congressional nomination for District 3, the seat Democrat Tom Udall will vacate to compete for Domenici’s Senate post.
He wants to be part of what he calls the “post-partisanship” era.
