Los Alamos County Democrats gathered in White Rock’s town hall Thursday evening for the countywide pre-primary convention to choose delegates to the statewide convention March 15. Up for grabs were 22 delegate positions, allocated by precinct. The precincts are combined into wards, with the number of delegates from each ward determined by recorded votes from 2004 and 2006 elections, with approximately one delegate for each 200 votes cast for a Democratic candidate.County Democratic Chair Steven Fettig ran an orderly meeting, where voters were certified and delegates chosen in very short order, followed by some vigorous campaigning by several of the candidates who are hoping to get on the June primary ballot.The delegates will represent Los Alamos at the statewide pre-primary nominating convention for the June 3 primary election, where they will choose nominees for the United States Senate and Congress as well as a wide range of state and local offices. The presidential nominee from New Mexico, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., was chosen in the Feb. 5 caucus. Clinton outpolled her contender Sen. Barack Obama, D-IL, by 1,709 votes in a caucus that saw long lines, insufficient printed ballots and problems with the voter rolls used to certify voters.All three of New Mexico’s sitting representatives are vying for the Senate seat that has been held by Sen.
