Weh vs. Udall?

Roll Call is reporting that former New Mexico Republican Party Chairman Allen Weh is considering a run against U,S. Sen. Tom Udall in 2014.

“As anybody should do when considering a move like this, you do your homework … and gather enough information to make a sound decision,” Weh said.

Weh, 70, ran for governor in 2010 losing a surprisingly bitter primary race to Susana Martinez, who went on to win the general election.

Weh is a retired Marine colonel who owns an Albuquerque aviation company.

Roll Call points out that, despite Martinez's 2010 victory, Republicans haven't fared so well here in statewide races. Obama won the state this year by 10 percentage points, while Martin Heinrich won his Senate race over Heather Wilson by six.

But just in case, maybe Udall should brush up on his cooking skills.
