Howe Now?

Monday night at a League of Women Voters event, I ran into Public Regulation Commissioner Doug Howe, who told me that he was running for the position this year as a Democrat.

Shortly after talking to him, I blogged about it and wrote a brief for Tuesday's New Mexican.

Then, late last night, I read this in today's paper:
"I don't know how to be a politician. I'm not one. I might be able to learn. But I need a lot more than two months to do it. I finally came to the conclusion that it is an insurmountable task."
I'm not sure what happened between Monday night and yesterday. But I guess that makes this card a collector's item.

  1. Could he just mean that he's still running, but he doesn't consider himself a polititan, which is a loaded word these days? Or maybe he noticed there were several other Dems running who have more experience running for office and already have a head start on him in this race?
