Lawrence Rael, who helped start the Rail Runner commuter rail system, entered the race for governor on Wednesday, becoming the fifth Democrat seeking to unseat Republican incumbent Susana Martinez.

    Bring on the candidates. A vigorous and vitriolic Democrat primary, filled with mud-slinging, muck-raking, and back-stabbing, is just what Governor Martinez needs to secure her reelection.

    Good luck!! I mean that wholeheartedly. Governor Martinez must not be re-elected. She was given a chance and she has proven to be no good for our great state. If we the people vote a politician into office, we have the power to say "no" to them if they don't do a good job. The people must clean house every four years if need be. Locally and in Washington D.C. Vote these old guys out. their ideas are old and they are about themselves not the people
