Take a trip down Route 66

SANTA FE — New Mexico followed the national trend of tossing out the old in favor of the new in the recent primary elections. Doña Ana County Republicans will present a fresh face to the rest of the state in the person of Susana Martinez for governor.

Martinez has been district attorney in the county for some 13 years but not known much in the rest of New Mexico despite the efforts of state party leaders who wanted to entice her into running for state offices years ago.

Candidates from the Las Cruces area do well in gubernatorial elections despite the rest of the south being shut out the past 50 years. Republicans Ed Mechem and Gary Carruthers and Democrat Jerry Apodaca have served a total of 12 years in office. They probably got some extra bounce out of El Paso media although they were not well known to the rest of the state when they ran.

Martinez will be paired with lt. gov. candidate John Sanchez of Albuquerque, who tried winning at the top of the ticket eight years ago. Sanchez spent the past eight years making enough money in the roofing business to essentially self-finance his campaign this year.
