Brian Colón Close to Entering Race for NM Lt. Governor?

Brian & wife Aleli at Invesco Field, 2008 Dem National Convention

There's been a flurry of rumors circulating today about additional candidates who may be close to tossing their hats in the ring for Lt. Governor in 2010 on the Dem side. According to some of my little birdies (peep, peep), Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Brian Colón is front and center on that count. I've heard from several trustworthy contacts that he's seriously considering a run, and that he'll be making a decision sooner rather than later. I'm also getting reports that Colon has been getting calls from a wide variety of Democrats urging him to run. More will be revealed soon, I'm sure. In the meantime, consider it a rumor based on info from sources I view as credible.

Brian would make a formidable candidate. Hope he gets in the race.

I don't know if this is good or not. I don't know if I support his decision or not. I don't know if I will/would vote for him in the primaries for Lt. Governor or not. It will be interesting for sure. Hopefully they do not bloody each other up too, too bad, so the winner of the primaries can move forward to the general election without limping.
