Steve Pearce: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

After launching a failed bid for Senate, vacating his House seat just eight months ago, announcing his intention to run for "something" and examining the "political realities," Steve Pearce is running for Congress - again.


"No matter how much polling Steve Pearce has conducted or how many political calculations he's made, one thing's for sure, New Mexicans already rejected the Pearce record - soundly," said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.  "In fact, it's pretty clear; Steve Pearce is just on the hunt for his next political gig."


In fact, even though New Mexicans have already said no to Steve Pearce, he just won't quit.
