The Santa Fe Tea Party
It's too bad that the word "maverick" became overused and virtually meaningless during the last presidential campaign. The word could apply to a couple of very different New Mexico politicians who appeared at the Santa Fe Tea Party Wednesday -- former Gov. Gary Johnson and former state Sen. Jon Grubesic.
Whatever you think about the politics of these two -- and the conservative crowd on the Plaza seemed to love Johnson and hate Grubesic (see the advance text for his speech HERE ) -- one thing you can't call either is "run-of-the-mill."
My story on the anti-tax rally is HERE.
