When Santa Fe mayoral candidate Asenath Kepler lost the March 2 mayoral election—pulling 4,400 votes, or roughly one-third of the votes cast—she promised
to stay involved
. At least for know, we know how she plans to do so: As chairwoman of Adam Kokesh's Congressional campaign committee
"He is the only Republican who can win in this district," Kepler says in a statement.
Kokesh of Santa Fe faces Farmington Republican Tom Mullins—most recently in the news
for expressing his fears about forced civilian disarmament
—in the June 1 primary election. Whoever wins will challenge US Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-NM.
That Kokesh supports Kepler and vice-versa is no surprise, given their shared philosophy
. And speaking of Tea Partiers, it looks like they'll be protesting again this year on April 15
