Even if Johnson ran, he'd never win a Republican primary. He is too socially liberal for the evangelical/teabagging crowd.

If Johnson wins, it'll be as an independent.

I'm hoping now that Bingaman retires so that Johnson can have the opportunity to run.

Is there even a Tea Party base in New Mexico aside from, you know, Martinez?

GO JOHNSON!

Well 1st off it's New Mexico so the evangelical's are not as strong as elsewhere. Then there is the "too socially liberal" thing, the tea partiers main focus is on fiscal issues where he fits them perfectly. If not being a social conservative was as big a deal as your making it to be then Paul would have been taken out in a primary a long time ago given his districts location.

Heather Wilson was effectively attacked by Pearce as "too moderate" back in 2008.

Bearing in mind, that's Steve Pearce. The guy's a bit laughable.

Seems to me that the Tea Party loves Johnson, anyway, if this forum is anything to go by.

I doubt Johnson is interested in the Senate.  Surprising how well Lujan and Heinrich do against Wilson.  I'd laugh if Pearce is dumb enough to give up his seat so he can get slaughtered statewide again.


I don't think Bingaman runs for re-election.  GOP needs to find a new name.  That's how they the Governorship.

Johnson definitely would win the GOP primary. New Mexico has an open primary and a lot of Democrats/independents would cross over to vote for him. Plus, New Mexicans (Tongue) are more liberal than others around the country, including Republicans.

Johnson wouldn't even be a lock for the primary:

Quote
Johnson's not the choice of Republican voters when it comes to who they want to take on Jeff Bingaman in next year's Senate race either. 35% say their first pick would be Heather Wilson, followed by 27% for Johnson, 17% for Steve Pearce, 6% for Matt Chandler and Dianna Duran, and 4% for John Sanchez.

lol Steve Pearce 17% after the voters rejected him soundly in 2008? You can see why the New Mexico is quickly turning into a Vermont-like Dem haven.
