Great news. New Mexico sources say that Darren White, the Bernalillo County Sheriff is announcing for Congress in NM-1.

Darren is a very strong candidate. In 2006, he was re-elected with 63% of the vote. Check out the numbers. They are the Bernalillo County numbers. (Torrance County is also in the district and provided the margin for Wilson’s victory)

This is a recruiting coup. Go NRCC! Go Tom Cole!
