No Comments

According to Heath Haussamen, Doña Ana County Commissioner Bill McCamley has tossed his hat into the race to knock out Rep. Steve Pearce. From Heath’s post:

McCamley, a Democrat, will have to face Al Kissling in a primary to earn the right to take on Pearce next year. There’s also a possibility that other Democrats, including State Rep. Joseph Cervantes, D-Las Cruces, will enter the race.

The stars will have to align for a Democrat to take down Pearce, Albuquerque pollster Brian Sanderoff said. Pearce, 59, was first elected in 2002 and has fought off challenges from strong Democrats in the past.

Haussaman has written a lengthy post on the subject, so be sure to check it out.
