Eichenberg's timing disenfranchises regular Dems

State Senator Tim Eichenberg became the 23rd state legislator to decide to not run for re-election.

In waiting until after the Primary to step down, Eichenberg ensured that the Democratic Party insiders will choose the Party candidate, not Democrats at large.

If the Primary process is so unimportant, why don't they just abandon it altogether, and let Bernalillo County Democratic Party Central Committee members pick all the Democratic candidates, as a matter of course?

I'm a democrat, and even I believe this to be dirty politics.... there should be some consequences! I see the Democrats playing more dirtier every year..... no excuse. Like many others, I no longer wave their flag...... independant now.
