Anti-abortion, pro-gun [View all]

“After leaving his position as chief meteorologist in Albuquerque on Monday, Mark Ronchetti announced (he) is vying for the GOP nomination (for U.S. Senate) ...”
(KRQE-tv noon news said Ronchetti will run on a pro-life, pro-2nd amendment platform)


Weatherman Turns Politico; All Wet Or Sunny Skies Ahead?


Dem Chris Catecheis joked:
"Why would he quit a job where he could be wrong 80% of the time and still stay employed, just to run for the senate?"

Don't expect the other GOP candidates to yield to him. That means the R's March pre-primary convention is pivotal.

That convention will place candidates on the June primary ballot. If a contender doesn't get 20 percent of delegate support, he doesn't get an official ballot spot and would have to file additional petition signatures to make the ballot. However, failing to get 20 percent at the convention dries up the money and is almost always the death knell for a candidacy.
