Who's in 2nd District again?

-A A +A
By Hal Rhodes

Just a year ago New Mexicans and other Americans were stumbling out of mid-term elections, wondering how a Republican group calling itself the Tea Party would use its powers as the new majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Today campaigning is already underway for next year’s elections, which promise to be equally unfathomable.
The uncertainty is palpable in New Mexico where Democratic and Republicans hopefuls are jousting for seats in Congress and the state Legislature from districts, the shapes of which are unknown.
It couldn’t be otherwise after Gov. Susana Martinez and the Legislature failed to agree on how to remap the state’s sundry political districts at a special redistricting session this summer.
It’s another unwanted mess in which we’ve allowed ourselves to be ensnared. Campaigns are organized processes that find candidates hustling prospective voters for their support in advance of elections.
The hitch this year is that hundreds of would-be candidates for 42 seats in the state Senate and 70 seats in the House haven’t a clue whether those voters they are courting will actually end up living in the districts they plan to run in next year.
