When is an endorsement not an endorsement.
Apparently, not when it comes to the two Democratic state senators, who voiced support for Rep Jim Hall (R-Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Sandoval and Rio Arriba) in the House District 43 race against Stephanie Garcia Richard.
Hall’s campaign sent out a press release that said the following:
“Northern New Mexico’s State Senators Carlos Cisneros (District 6: Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe, and Taos) and Richard Martinez (District 5: Los Alamos, Rio Arriba. and Santa Fe) support incumbent State Representative Jim Hall in his campaign for the State House of Representatives.
“During Hall’s first term in the state legislature Rep. Hall worked with both Senators Cisneros and Martinez, passing legislation to benefit New Mexico and the northern New Mexico region.
“Senator Richard Martinez said, “I worked with Jim Hall when he was a County Councilor and now as a legislator. If elected, he will do an outstanding job of representing Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico.”
