New Mexico Politics with Joe Monahan

Here’s a red hot one for you Roundhouse watchers this primary season:Whoever comes out on top in the June 5 primary, either retired LANL physicist Peter Sheehey or former lab attorney Christine Chandler, will face Republican candidate Lisa Shin in November to represent a state House district that covers Los Alamos County, and parts of Rio Arriba, Sandoval and Santa Fe counties. Current Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard, a Democrat who is vacating her seat to run for state land commissioner, took what had been considered a GOP stronghold when she was first elected in 2012, then soundly defeated Republican challengers in two subsequent elections.If you’re with the R’s you’re all over this one because Lisa Shin is a high quality player who could deliver one of the few bright spots for the GOP this year.Chandler had $6,300 cash on hand for the final month at the last report and Sheehey had $3,250.
