Hot Polling Action #34
Should the death penalty be outlawed in New Mexico?
As written by Marisa Demarco in this week’s Answer Me This:
“With the more Democratic makeup of the state Legislature and the likelihood of Lt. Gov. Diane Denish becoming governor, New Mexico has a shot at abolishing the death penalty. A bill calling for the end of the death penalty crops up every other year or so during the Session. But it's trouble for a potential presidential candidate like Richardson to support such an action for fear of being viewed as soft on crime, theorizes the Santa Fe New Mexican's Steve Terrell.”
