Is It 2010 Yet?

It's that time of year. ...

Earlier this week former Democratic State Chariman Brian Colon had a kick-off even in Albuquerque for his lieutenant governor bid. Republican state Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones announced her gubermatorial bid last weekend, while former state Rep. Brian Moore announced his candidacy for lieutenant governor yesterday.

Here's what's coming up:

Sen. Linda Lopez, D-Albuquerque, who has been campaigning for lieutenant governor for several months, will officially make it official on Saturday at a "Kickoff Celebration" in Albuquerque, followed by a Railrunner Ride to Santa Fe, where she'll have another "Kickoff Celebration.

The first event is at Washington Middle School park at 9:30 a.m. The Santa Fe celebration is at 1:30 p.m. in front of The Market Place.


Former Republican state GOP Chairman Allen Weh, who has been in "exploratory committee" mode for a few months (but has made no secret of his intention to run for governor next year), also is making it official. He's announcing noon Tuesday at the Atrium at the Student Union Building at the University of New Mexico.
