In a year when many speculate that the state Republican Party has a decent shot at winning control of the New Mexico House of Representatives for the first time in decades, legislative leaders of both parties agree that the fate of the House probably boils down to 10 races — two of them in districts that include parts of Santa Fe County.

When asked in separate interviews this week to list the races on which they will focus, Rep. Nate Gentry, the Republican spearheading his party’s House effort, and Rep. Moe Maestas, his Democratic counterpart in recruiting House candidates, agreed on the five best chances for Republican pickups and the five best chances for Democrats to take seats away from the GOP.

    The death of Representative Easely was truly a loss for this family, his constituents and the state as well. Easley brought informed, respectable and compassionate leadership to NM politics. The Governor's selection of Perea to replace Easley was another move to further her personal political agenda and DID NOT, remotely, represent the majority sensibilities of Easley's district. NM requires informed leadership with progressive respect for 21 Century dynamics and not the rollback politics that keeps NM in the national and international news for all the wrong reasons.
