Incumbents Beware!

As the Legislature moves into a special session with tax hikes on the horizon, I point out in today’s Albuquerque Journal that the political winds have done a 180 degree turn from the leftward lurch of 2008. Only the New Mexico House and the Governor’s office are up for election, but I do believe that there is a strong anti-incumbent undercurrent among conservatives and independents alike. Support for tax hikes during the special session is going to have consequences in November.
