State has scant influence in race

-A A +A
By Hal Rhodes

As these lines are written, Super Tuesday is behind us  and the votes are still being counted in the 10 states where March 6 was primary election day.
For New Mexico Democrats, secure in the knowledge that President Obama will again be their standard bearer in the November election, Super Tuesday was at best a spectator sport.
For New Mexico Republicans, on the other hand, Super Tuesday was) yet another instance of having to stand by voiceless as voters in other states decided who their presidential nominee will likely be during the Fall campaign.
Super Tuesdays are big deals in any race for the White House. This year no fewer than 437 delegate slots at the August 27 Republican National Convention are (were) up for grabs. Yet which of the current crop of wannabe GOP presidential nominees will get how many of New Mexico’s 23 delegates at that August convention won’t be decided until state Republicans go the their polling places on primary election day, June 5.
That’s three months down the road. By then the game will be over, and it won’t matter one whit which of those wannabes New Mexico Republicans would have preferred at the top of their ticket this year.
