    Incumbant Martin Heinrich, progressive SchumerBot turd, versus Republican Mick Rich who is so well known that Wikipedia can't find a photo of him. Rich got he GOP nomination because nobody else ran. Retiring Freedom Caucus Representative, Steve Pearce, decided to run for governor instead.

    One of the candidates is a pot-smoking, pro-choice, open-border, slash-the military, gay-rights, free-trade extremist, never-Trumper who has high name recognition, high approval rating and was elected to statewide office TWICE. NO, I'm not talking about Heinrich.....it's Gary Johnson who recently decided to throw his hat in the ring as the Libertarian candidate.

    There is no polling yet on a 3-way race, not that it would mean much. The following facts should be considered:

    1. Heinrich has a 40% approval rating which in many states would 86 his re-election prospects. But New Mexico is Obama-Clinton territory.

    2. While Johnson is in line with much of the Democrat party line he is a solid 2nd amendment advocate and opposes raising taxes to give democrats back their "crumbs". Despite being a Blue state, gun rights and low taxes are important to many "mainstream" democrat voters. NOBODY wants to live in Albuquerque without a gun.

    If handled correctly by the GOP, Johnson could pull many more Democrat voters than Republican. HOWEVER, some of the New Mexico talk radio pundits are pushing the idea that Mick Rich "doesn't have a chance" so vote for Johnson as "the lesser of two evils". The GOP should campaign on the theme that Johnson will vote with Schumer on military spending, DACA, abortion, drugs etc. This will make Johnson more palatable to Democrats, Republicans not so much. The goal being to turn it into a REAL 3-way horse race. Some RNC cash and a couple of MAGA rallies wouldn't hurt.

    there is poll on this one, but it's an Emerson poll - anyways:

    registered voters (too late for that), they have it at 38-21-11 with over thirty percent undecided, won't give the partisan affiliations, so you're right. Gary Johnson is a nut IMO but he's very popular in that state as a former governor and could actually win this.

    Mark Rich should just drop out if he's only pulling 10%. I'd much rather have Johnson in there. Who knows if the polls are accurate of course.
