The Plame Campaign Is Looking Awfully Lame

Washington Examiner

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame’s status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she’s an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent.

Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state’s 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population.

Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

Plame’s strategy of drawing attention to her background in foreign policy and boasting that she knows her way around Washington is flawed, said local officials and pollsters interviewed by the New York Times. Voters care about local issues and knowledge of the region, said Gabriel Sanchez, a Latino Decisions pollster and executive director of the University of New Mexico’s Center for Social Policy. More

  1. The only thing that would make this better is if they had Hervé Villechaize doing his patented call for her campaign ” The Plame the Plame”

  2. She’s a fraud: her whole “CIA agent” identity is bullshit: she was never an operative, just a clerk. Kind of like being the food vendor for the Navy Seals and claiming you are one of them.

    She is the ULTIMATE swamp piece of shit.

    But in the eyes of the smellocrats those are perfect credentials to be elected to congress
    Just like Tedward ( homicide ) Kennedy was supremely qualified

    Scooter Libby could not be reached for comment.

  5. I hope she loses and loses big. She should be nowhere near the levers and switches of government.

  6. That’s what happens to your forehead slamming against a headboard when pulling a doggie train, cia clerks learn early that their bosses are never happy unless they do things as a group, that shadowy stuff is so 1960’s.

  7. Driving along I-40 today crossing the New Mexico-Arizona state line, we passed an “Indian-owned” trading post. It had a ginormous “Trump 2020” sign out front. Yet another sign of impending landslide.
