Lt. Gov Rumble


No, it wasn't really a rumble, but the forum featuring six of the seven candidates (State Sen. Tim Eichenberg was campaigning down in Las Cruces) turned out to be a pretty interesting discussion.

There were no severe blows that landed. The closest to any direct criticism of one another were references to "certain committees" holding up ethics bills. State Sen. Linda Lopez, chairwoman of the Senate Rules Committee owned up to the fact that she's the one they were talking about, defending the stalling of bills to create an ethics commission during the past few sessions. She did say she's got an ethics commission bill of her own she'll be introducing, assumedly in 2010.
