John Fremont strikes again. Well, the 21st Century incarnation of him.
New Mexico Republicans will meet in tomorrow, December 8, to elect a new state chairman. The election is seen by many as a referendum on the direction of the party, controlled by the pro-Martinez branch of the party managed by (some say held hostage by) the governor's political advisor Jay McCleskey.
We wrote earlier about the post-election battle being waged publicly against McCleskey. On the eve of the election, a new email was sent to GOP insiders from "John Fremont" (Fremont was the founder of the modern day Republican Party c. 1854) urging them to vote against any chairman controlled by McCleskey.
Seems the next battle in the NMGOP Civil War is upon us.
