ROUNDHOUSE ROUNDUP: Noncompetitive Races = Fewer Attack Ads

Is it possible that 2014 could come and go in New Mexico without wall-to-wall negative ads that make local television virtually impossible to watch during the final weeks of election season?

That’s probably doubtful, but it’s not out of the question if the top races here don’t become more competitive.

(I’ve said it before. If there’s anything worse than attack ads, it’s positive ads — with few exceptions.)
