NM-Sen. Udall Gains Steam
Draft Udall should be gaining some steam right about now, in its efforts to draft New Mexico Congressman Tom Udall for the Senate seat being vacated by Pete Domenici.
A Research 2000 poll conducted for Daily Kos shows Udall performing the best among all Democrats not named Bill Richardson (who wasn't included in the poll).
Wilson (R) 45 Wilson (R) 44 Wilson (R) 38
Chavez (D) 42 Denish (D) 43 Udall (D) 55
Pearce (R) 40 Pearce (R) 39 Pearce (R) 37
Chavez (D) 39 Denish (D) 45 Udall (D) 54
It's poll numbers like this that have led declared candidate, Albuquerque's Democratic Mayor Martin Chavez to already go negative on Udall, before he's even a candidate. While Chavez is losing to both Republican candidates in the poll, Udall crushes them. While Congressman Udall is reconsidering running for the Senate, perhaps Martin Chavez has something entirely diferent to reconsider: whether its worth it to stay in the race if Tom Udall gets in.
Did I mention that Congressman Udall has some impressive progressive credentials?
