Now that we've got those pesky primaries out of the way and we know who's facing who, we can get down to the business of choosing who's going to represent us in all of the various levels of government. Of course there were a couple of surprises like Commissioner Theresa (my son really didn't get an F did he?) Cordova falling to Art De La Cruz (unofficial results here), but by and large there weren't any huge surprises around the Albuquerque area.
So... it's game on for the general election! To kick things off we're going to start with an Eye Poll of the 1st Congressional District. Who do you think will best represent the people of Eyeland, a law and order sheriff or a far left former Albuquerque city councilor? That's this week's Eye Poll - the first of the general election season. Don't forget to vote!
