The Albuquerque Journal and the rest of the media are all trying to be the first to tell you that Marty is out and that Tom Udall has his full support. (Guess that scam-era moratorium veto just became a sure thing.) All this despite the fact that he's leading in this week's Eye Poll 52% to 48%. Of course in true Marty fashion he sent out a blast email to the Martycrat faithful asking them to head over to Eye On Albuquerque and vote for him in our little unscientific poll.
Hello Everyone,We're all for getting out the vote, but for an Internet poll?! Sheesh! Perhaps the Martycrats figured out that there's no way to push the primary. More importantly, The Almighty One was probably having a hard time finding enough support to make it past the pre-primary convention with its mandatory 20%.
A local blog here in Albuquerque has a poll online asking, "Who do you favor in the Democratic Primary?" I believe over the last 2 years of my third term as Mayor we have made tremendous strides in Albuquerque by becoming green, being a business friendly city,and building out all our amenities. I would like to bring the strong leadership that I have brought to Albuquerque to the U.S. Senate.
Today, I am asking you to spend 30 seconds by clicking here and voting for me, Martin Chavez. Thank you so much in advance.
If there is anything I can do for you in the future please feel free to contact my campaign office at 830-2008.
"While I deeply appreciate all the support I have received, it has become very clear to me that Democrats should not be divided in the upcoming election. It is crucial to the future of New Mexico and this country that a Democrat become the next U.S. Senator. A hotly contested primary, as this one certainly could be, would likely dramatically weaken the Democratic nominee and place the general election in jeopardy."Rrrrriiiiiight! Marty has been bashing Udall since before Udall even announced to announce to announce. We're having a hard time believing that he suddenly has put the good of the Democratic party before his personal ambitions.- Martin Chavez

The next question is will Marty bounce back to a gubernatorial run, over to a Congressional run, or challenge the city charter in order to make him mayor for life (kind' a like another Chavez recently - Hugo).
There's no doubt that today The Almighty has fallen. The only remaining questions are how far and what kind of vengeance he will mete out while serving out the rest of his term.
