Seems like the gubernatorial race suddenly took a positive turn. Both Diane Denish and Susana Martinez have ads out today that are positive overall.
Denish's is upbeat and features women casually sitting around, talking about her more as a person than a politician.
Martinez' ad has police who promote their endorsement of her, although it starts with Darren White saying "Diane Denish helped abolish the death penalty, even for cop killers."
Update, 4:21 p.m.
At the same time, Democrats say in a news release that the ad features the former director of the state's Adult Parole Board, Bob Martinez. Gov. Bill Richardson removed Bob Martinez in August of 2004 for failing to notify victims of a parole hearing for sex-offender priest David Holley. Martinez apologized at the time and the parole was rescinded.
So maybe it's not all as nice as I thought. . .
