Well, we all survived another Cinco de Mayo. It is another day closer to a time when the candidates for state office will have to make a final decision on whether or not to run.

Another name that threw his name in the ring for governor, and looks like an all-but sure thing to make it official, is Rep. Moe Maestas. The progressive Democrat was in Kentucky for a Democratic Governors Association meeting to encourage them to not give up on New Mexico as a state that Democrats can win.

The candidates would be trying to take out popular Republican governor Susana Martinez.
