The Monitor will continue its tradition of recommendations in election races, this year making some suggestions for the primary – in which early voting has already begun.
The Monitor editorial board was not unanimous in its recommendations, and that will be noted when pertinent. And we will not comment on uncontested races.
In the race for the U.S. House seat in the Third District, the board was divided between Don Wiviott and Harry Montoya in the Democratic primary.
Both men have strong backgrounds, with a lot of maturity behind them. They have dealt with issues of business and government and have a broad breath of experience.
In the end, however, we recommend Montoya to voters. He has more governmental experience and a wider range of knowledge of northern New Mexico.
Given that our next Congressional delegation will be all rookies, we need to send someone who can hit the ground running the fastest and we believe from the Democratic side, that is Montoya.
The Monitor recommends Harry Montoya in the Democratic primary.
On the Republican side of the House primary, we recommend Marco Gonzales.
He clearly has the experience, knowledge and contacts to do the job. And he will need the shortest training time – something we simply can’t afford this time given the dynamics of our new delegation.
