Sanchez is ‘seriously considering’ Senate run


  1. Soledad says:

    A simple rule of politics is that you don’t run for office unless you know 500 people who will write you a campaign check. Some speculate that Sanchez had to self-fund his Lt. Guv campaign because he couldn’t raise the money from supporters. There might be a few people telling John he should run for the US Senate – but are they willing to put their money where their mouth is? Don’t think so.

  2. Doris V says:

    Guess Sanchez has been tapped by the party to be the sacrficial lamb so that Heather has an opponent.

  3. CAP says:

    John Sanchez has a real problem and it’s that Susana Martinez, the state’s most popular Republican politician, doesn’t seem to care for Sanchez at all.

    It doesn’t seem to make sense that she would support him just to get him out of her way. I’d expect Susana to support Heather because of the role she played as Susana’s transition chair. AFter all, she chose Heather….she didn’t choose John.

    It was interesting to notice that many of Susana’s political advisor’s clients like R.J. Berry and Darren White were there to support Heather. That pretty much says a lot.

    John Sanchez isn’t well informed. He knows his talking points but he sure isn’t very intellecually curious.

    Isn’t it strange that he hasn’t ever finished his college degree? We are in the 21st century now….we don’t elect uneducated people tobthe Senate anymore.

    While Heather Wilson was earning her PhD at Oxford, Sanchez was collecting trash and passing out drinks on American Airlines. Big difference.

  5. Rodeo says:

    You know who is smart? Susana Martinez. Why? Because she is keeping John Sanchez far far far away from her. He embarrassed her on the campaign trail and certainly doesn’t need him embarrassing her administration.

    Making a broad statement such as:


    “John Sanchez isn’t smart,”

    without offering support is counterproductive to the discussion. In fact, it’s the same unsupported statement we’ve heard since he ran for Governor. I have heard him speak on several occassions and have met him numerous times, and believe him to be intelligent, sincere, and a man of integrity.

    Perhaps you can enlighten us all on what makes a politician “smart.”

  7. KennethParrot says:

    Either way, he’ll continue to have my support and respect, and that of many many others as well.

    There’s just one thing I can’t get past, Just Tex — John Sanchez isn’t smart. Don’t we want smart people representing us in Washington. Just sayin’……

  8. Just Tex says:

    John Sanchez would be a welcome breath of fresh air, in a race that might otherwise turn into a mud-fest. If he decides to run he’ll be at least as competitive as any other Republican.

    And if he does run, and runs hard, and hones his message well without being sidetracked by non-issues, he’ll win both the GOP primary and then go on to win in the general election.

    But it’s a huge decision, especially for someone with very deep roots to home. So he shouldn’t and won’t make this decision lightly. Either way, he’ll continue to have my support and respect, and that of many many others as well.
