The GOP gets smart; New Mexico better get ready
The GOP is definitely getting its act together. And, guess what? New Mexico is going to be right in the thick of it. This is not me being delusional or overly optimistic. This fact that the Republican operatives are working smartly, strategically, and adeptly – in an under-the-radar manner – is pointed out in a Sunday New York Times piece. You can and should read Nicholas Confessore’s piece right here.
Essentially, gone are the days of the RNC. Today is the dawn of the super PAC and outside Republican caucus groups. It’s serious. It’s smart.
New Mexico is one of a few states cited twice, not once, in this article. No one is denying that The Land of Enchantment is a target. If you thought you were a battleground in 2008, just wait for 2012. Fun for you. (As such, you might want to consider getting all of your prime-time television watching out of the way now…)
In case you don’t have time to read the article, here are the two New Mexico citations:
“Groups that have made defeating Mr. Obama their top priority expect to invest heavily in some of the new swing states where Mr. Obama made inroads in 2008, like Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico.”
“…Although the outside groups maintain their own strategies — American Crossroads, for example, stays out of Republican primaries, while Americans for Prosperity takes sides — they collaborate and divide up duties where possible. This month as American Crossroads pounded Mr. Obama with advertising over his jobs plan, Americans for Prosperity organized more than a dozen rallies against the proposal in states like Colorado, Missouri, New Mexico and Washington.”
