Is it time for a voter revolt?

Candidates Diane Denish and Susana Martinez have no apparent interest in an open and honest discussion of the myriad of real issues in and surrounding state government.

Voters, on the other hand, have no apparent interest in seeing or hearing even another negative campaign ad.

Whose will is being done?

And if voters interests are being ignored now, why in the world would anyone believe that people's interests will not be ignored when the winner has even less need to pay attention?

If voters, of all political persuasions united and together demanded campaigns based on issues, would it make any difference at all?

While there is some inherent logic in campaigns being driven by candidates, there is some logic as well in demanding that campaigns address the interests of voters too. That logic, unfortunately, is not compelling; at least not to Martinez and Denish.
