This past weekend we ended up in tiny Lincoln, New Mexico for their annual Billy the Kid Days festival (If you get a chance, go. It’s a lot of fun and the people there are some of New Mexico’s nicest). The former county seat of Lincoln County, Lincoln and the surrounding communities are home base for New Mexico’s Republican Party.
Safely conservative ground, Democrats did not even field a candidate in recent primaries in the state house race in District 56, for county clerk, county treasurer or any of the three local magistrate judge races.
So it struck us as odd that the campaign signs and giveaways for Dianna Duran’s re-election for secretary of state never mentioned that she is one of the Republican Party’s two highest-ranking statewide officials.
When they started explaining why her campaign didn’t want to be identified with the Republican Party, we hit record.
