New Mexico — A One-Party State

The Democrats have controlled the New Mexico state government for decades, with — just once in a while, to break the monotony — a Republican governor. But our Congressional delegation has normally been split between the parties — all long-serving office-holders.

But then Senator Pete Domenici announced his retirement, and all three of our Representatives went after his seat. As a result, with the swearing-in of the new Congress, New Mexico is now represented by nothing but Democrats.

Now we really are — completely — a one party state.
