At the time, just four months after the GOP’s crushing success in the 2010 congressional elections, Republicans had high hopes of regaining control of the Senate, where Democrats barely clung to power. With the Senate split 53-47, a change of four seats would shift control.
But much has changed in the last year and a half. Due to a variety of factors, the chances of a Republican-controlled Senate seem much dimmer. And one of those factors is that Republican Heather Wilson has consistently trailed Democrat Martin Heinrich in the polls, prompting the national Republicans to yank anticipated financial support for Wilson.
The very competitive 2012 election cycle couldn’t come at a better time for landlords, who have plenty of vacant office space and few corporate candidates seeking to fill it. Candidates for state and national offices need temporary space to run their operations and will pay above-market rates for their spaces, which typically are less than 5,000 square feet, according to brokers who have done campaign leases.
Some candidates might have an advantage if their landlords have an affinity for a party or candidate.
"We're trying to determine who the culprit was. I guess with the parade, someone thought this would be funny. Well it's not. It's not funny at all," Perez said.

"The fact is he's not currently with UNM," Pari Noskin, a program manager at UNM's Department of Psychiatry, tells SFR. "It's a problem because he's saying he's with UNM and he's not."
Noskin did find a contract between Ulwelling and UNM in 2007 as a clinical assistant professor in volunteer faculty, meaning he helped train individuals but did not see patients. That contract ended at the end of the year, and there hasn't been one since, according to UNM.
The episode teaches three lessons. One, Martinez demonstrated that not only white male, but also Hispanic female, Republicans believe that "forcible rape," like "legitimate rape" is a distinct, meaningful legal concept. Two, she revealed that state Republicans prefer the secrecy of silence on sensitive issues and operate secretly to implement their agendas. Three, she gives New Mexicans good reason to suspect state Republicans of either keeping silent about their intentions or saying one thing and meaning another.
