    You're correct. But I think what the NM Dem Chair meant is that Martinez & Sandoval campaigned for their fellow Republicans last year, yet their favored candidates mostly lost. It suggests that their popularity is limited to themselves and may not carry easily to other GOP candidates on the ticket.

    This is what I was hinting at up-thread. There's a chance Sandoval easily wins reelection here... Yet wins in a very Arnold Schwarzenegger CA-Gov 2006 kind of way in that he's NOT seen as "the typical Republican". If that happens, his coattails will be very short next year despite his big win.
