NM Super Delegate Breakdown

According to this Albuquerque Tribune report the NM Democratic Super Delegates breakdown like this:

Super powers

Political experts believe the Democratic presidential nomination could come down to the votes of “superdelegates,” party leaders and elected officials whose vote does not need to reflect the voting majority.

New Mexico has 12, one of whom will be named in April.

Here’s where the rest stand:

For Hillary Clinton:

• Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez

• Lt. Gov. Diane Denish

• Mary Gail Gwaltney, a Democratic National Committeewoman from Las Cruces

• Annadelle Sanchez, political affairs consultant with the National Education Association of New Mexico and vice chairwoman of the state Democratic Party

• Raymond Sanchez, former speaker of the New Mexico House of Representatives

• Christine Trujillo, president of the American Federation of Teachers-New Mexico

For Barack Obama:

• Fred Harris, former Oklahoma senator, presidential candidate and national chairman of the party


• Gov. Bill Richardson

• U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman

• U.S. Rep. Tom Udall

• Brian Colón, chairman of the New Mexico Democratic Party

No word yet, on when the Congressional delegation and the Governor will endorse a candidate. So far they have chosen to remain neutral during the nomination process.

    I am a longtime Obama supporter and congratulate you on your choice as well. We are on the same side, but please STOP using the term “money bomb”. That is used by the Paul campaign to reference destroying government, ie some rediculous historical reference and movie. THIS PAINTS OUR EFFORTS AS THE LUNATIC FRINGE. Please use “fundraiser” or some other choice that does not associate us with a losing/delusional campaign.

    Solis Doyle, is dispensable, she has served her purpose to help us win the latino vote in the big states. We no longer need her or the latino vote to capture the white house. The women vote will now carry the Hillary campaign the rest of the way. Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton replaced campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with longtime aide Maggie Williams on Sunday. Ms. Clinton believes Maggie Williams is a better choice to target the women vote. Clinton said in a statement. “I am lucky to have Maggie on board and I know she will lead our campaign with great skill towards the nomination.”
