Happy Independence Day Weekend

I'm off work today and won't be back until next Wednesday.

I probably won't be blogging much here until then. But in the meantime, here's what Politico says about the New Mexico Senate race, which it ranks as number 7 in the Top 10 competitive races:

7. NEW MEXICO (Up 1 spot) — New Mexico leapfrogs Ohio after a Public Policy Polling survey showed both former Rep. Heather Wilson and Lt. Gov. John Sanchez within single digits of their potential Democratic opponents. Rep. Martin Heinrich and state auditor Hector Balderas showed comparable strength, presenting a difficult decision for a party eager to place more Hispanic faces at the top of the ticket. A subtle signal of the importance of Latinos: After indicating it was on the verge of backing Heinrich, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said it will remain neutral. On the margins, neutrality is a win for Balderas. So far, he and Heinrich have been playing nice, while Wilson and Sanchez duke it out over who is a more genuine conservative.

Who won June: Balderas

Of course, it doesn't mention the PPP results released yesterday showing Heinrich beating Balderas among Democrats by a 2 to 1 mmargin.

Oh well, have a safe holiday. And as I posted on my music blog, make sure any fireworks you shoot in New Mexico this year are this kind:
