Ya know, IMHO, our own US Rep Torres Small(D) made a cogent case against the 15 buck minimum wage and voted AGAINST it https://tinyurl.com/yy3fvwpe She also made a cogent case RE The Wall.
Not knowing anything about those who are dipping their toes in the Rio Grande, aka waffling about running for Udall’s bottom, nor my “vetting” TS, but hearing Trump is setting NM as a “key battleground state”, I’m but wondering if Torres Small might be Flipped…think of Reagan (when our own Sam Donaldson tried to “gotcha” him: https://tinyurl.com/jvvfqxc) and Trump as examples!!! In addition, and while trying to avoid so called Gender/Ethnic politics of the left, let us remember TS is a) a Chica b) with a Spanish surname who had c) a Great-GrandMother as an Indian, and who has d) as a 1st time D-US Rep, not joined up with The Squad!
