Yep. The first Tuesday in June 2010 is a year away -- to the date exactly.
Hard to believe we're almost in the midst of another gubernatorial race. Seems like I was just interviewing Bill Richardson and John Dendahl the other day. Of course that was back when Richardson was still giving interviews to the local media and Dendahl still lived in Santa Fe, but anywho...
On the other hand, it's not really hard to think the race is a year away if you consider about the recent candidate announcements trickling out. Yesterday brought news of Sen. Majority Leader Michael Sanchez's possible gubernatorial run. Last week, it was Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino's possible lieutenant gubernatorial run. Already, a trio of Republicans seem to want in on the action.
As for next week's announcement, well who knows. Anyone seen Val Kilmer recently?
