Constitutional Convention: Denish, Si. Martinez, ?

Picking up on the supremely obvious proposal more than a year ago by Rep. Joseph Cervantes, D-Las Cruces, for a Constitutional Revision Commission, blogger Heath Haussamen asked the two candidates for governor, “Do you support the creation of such a commission – or possibly even a new Constitutional convention – to consider changes to the state Constitution? What specific changes to the Constitution would you propose?”

Haussamen published the responses yesterday.

Diane Denish thoughtfully engaged the question and took 381 words to respond.

In her 92-word comment, Susana Martinez didn’t specifically mention the constitution. She said, “As governor, I will institute the necessary changes...”

Apparently Ms. Martinez doesn’t understand that New Mexico’s constitution is an out-dated, archaic, cumbersome mess that also restricts actions by the governor.
