Will Ben Run or Not?

HOUSE SPEAKER BEN LUJANI wrote a story in today's New Mexican about the fact that House Speaker Ben Lujan says he hasn't decided whether he'll seek re-election to his House seat.

"That's for me to decide," he said.

Well, that's true.

I pointed out that it's only four months until filing day. I also noted that there have been no stirrings from Carl Trujillo -- who lost to Lujan by 80-some votes last year -- or any other potential opponents.

But I also should point out that last election, hardly anyone had heard about Trujillo until filing day.

So, all I can say is stay tuned.
