Congratulations New Dem State Chairman - Sam Bregman
Picture above from Sam Bregman's FB page linked from the Dona Ana County Dems excellent website. See more about Sam and his appointments here.
Sam Bregman won the New Mexico State Democratic Chairman position this weekend. He will be the chair for the next 2 years. A very hard position it is. Many struggles are within the great state of NM, jobs and the economy being on the top of the list. Maybe dems can get the economy moving, but seeing the lack of movement on anything politically both with the feds and state politicians is very depressing.
Big kudos goes out to Roxanne Lara for stepping up and running for the state party chair. In the bigger scheme of things maybe it is better you were not victorious, it is a brutal job, imho.
A big thanks goes out to Javier Gonzales the exiting Dem party chair. Javier and his staff did the best they could, remember we are talking about the equivolent of herding cats.
Good luck Sam! We dems are counting on ya!
It is too bad that we Democrats let the State party chair be purchased in classic Republican fashion. Between the glitzy hotel the night before and the invites to his private Isotopes box, I want to know how much Sam Bregman paid to buy the election?

Hey, remember that Sam only lost by eight votes two years ago. He has worked hard to win this election. Now he will be working even harder!
I was a Roxanne supporter, but now it is important that we unite behind our new leader.
