Quotes of the Day

I figured I had the best quote of the day in New Mexico politics in my story on Joe Cervante's challenge to House Speaker Ben Lujan.

But I think I was topped in my colleague Robert Nott's story about a school board candidates forum.

There Donado Coviello, the artist formerly known as John Coventry, told the audience. "Even the people who vote you into office eventually hate you. Everybody already hates me, so why don't you save yourself some time and vote for me?"
