  • Incumbents paired in Senate redistricting proposal

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Democrats are proposing to reshuffle the political landscape of the 42-member state Senate by drawing new districts that could force two incumbent Republicans to run against each other in next year's election.

    The Senate is expected to debate the redistricting plan on Wednesday. Republicans oppose the measure, contending it could strengthen Democratic control of the Senate.

    Democrats hold a 27-15 majority in the Senate.

    The proposal would merge two districts in southeastern New Mexico, putting Republicans Rod Adair, of Roswell, and William Burt, of Alamogordo, in the same district. The plan also pairs Democrat Dede Feldman and Republican John Ryan in one Albuquerque district.

    For girls, a dress and heels are a must. The number one tip to keep in mind when it comes to a homecoming dress, it that it must fit right and be the right color. The worst thing you could do is show up at the dance in a very colorful dress that does not suit your skin tone.
