Unfortunately, there are some in both the Democrat and Republican parties who feel the seat currently occupied by Nunez should be under their party's control. Mudslinging, malicious attacks, and false accusations financed by these parties and their "friends" have no limits. Andy Nunez, however, has stayed out of the ugly political maneuvering, proving once again that his steadfast leadership and integrity will best fill the needs of his constituents and the people of this great state. ... Rep. Nunez may be the first person to be elected as an Independent to the state legislature, but it is our sincere hope that he is not the last.
Nunez, as I noted in my Sunday column, recently was attacked by Reform New Mexico Now, a political action committee headed by Gov. Susana Martinez's political director Jay McCleskey -- even though Nunez is the sponsor of one of Martinez's top agenda items -- the bill to repeal the law allowing driver's licenses for illegal immigrants.
Nunez is being opposed by Republican Mike Tellez and Democrat Felipe Archuleta in House District 36.
