    A cult of personality is beginning to develop around Griego, or has already. This is the 2nd person to come on here attacking MLG with outright lies.

    Lets set the story straight. She began her career as New Mexico State Agency on Aging under Democratic Governor Bruce King. Gary Johnson was going to put one of his own in her position, but many senior citizen groups demanded that she remain in the position. When Bill Richardson was elected, he appointed her the head of the Department of Health.

    Where may I ask, did you get the idea that she was not pro-choice?

      I would never dispute whether MLG is pro choice ... I'm pretty sure all 3 candidates are.  So my problem was that why is EMILY's choosing one candidate over another in the primary?  Why not save that money to use against whatever GOP nutter they face in the fall?

      Griego certainly is the darling of progressive blogs, and I'll admit that I'm seeing stars over him at this point, but hey I do respect any defense of the rest of the field and I appreciate your input.

        it's their general MO to choose pro-choice women in the primary, even if the other candidates are pro-choice men. I wouldn't say I agree with it per se, but it's not just this race where they're doing that.
