The New Mexico news recap

November 27, 2012, 6:00 am

The House Republican Caucus had a big leadership shakeup on Monday. Rep. Tom Taylor, R-Farmington, no longer controls the minority party. Instead, Rep. Donald Bratton, R-Hobbs, will take over the Minority Leader spot.

Rep. Nate Gentry, R-Albuquerque, will now get the GOP Whip spot and Rep. Alonzo Baldonado, R-Los Lunas, will be the Republican caucus chair.

The Four Corners area, the Republicans largest stronghold in Northern New Mexico, is shut out of hte leadership battle.

The actual changes shouldn't be too drastic in the House. The House Republicans are still in the minority, and by an even larger margin than they were before this year's elections, and the Democrats hold all the cards.

The House Republicans will attempt to aggressively push Gov. Susana Martinez's agenda -- but the House likely under Ken Martinez, D-Grants, in the Speaker's chair may not be as friendly a place for Martinez' agenda as it did in her first two years.
