GOP opens Los Alamos campaign HQ

-A A +A

Gubernatorial hopeful Susana Martinez talks about the lab, education

By Carol A. Clark

As the political season heats up, the Los Alamos Republican Party opened its campaign headquarters in Central Park Square Saturday. Congressional candidate Tom Mullins, gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez and Errol Chavez, who is running for state auditor, attended the event.
“We plan on changing things, we plan on being strong…we plan on shining a light on corruption,” Martinez told the crowd of 100 or so. “This race is so important, even for the Democrats, because if we turn the state red, then we can look to 2012. The nation is looking to us as a swing state…there’s only 59 days to the election.”
Both Martinez and Mullins expressed frustration with their opponents for being no shows at events throughout the state.
“There have been several events where she hasn’t shown up,” Martinez said of her opponent Diane Denish. Martinez pulled ahead by 6 percentage points over Denish in a recent Albuquerque Journal poll.
Mullins said he became tired of the fact that organizations weren’t polling his race against incumbent Ben Ray Lujan so he conducted a poll of his own Aug. 19.
Lujan received 45 percent and Mullins 40
percent with 15 percent undecided.
