Doug Turner Announces Bid for Governor?
On Wednesday, Doug Turner announced his candidacy for Governor in Albuquerque – well, kind of. After Turner forgot to actually announce his candidacy, his personal public relations team reminded him why he was there. And even then, it took Turner four tries to get it right and tell his audience that he was actually running for Governor.
We’re fairly sure that the voters in New Mexico want an authentic candidate with real passion, not a public relations operative that needs four-takes and nearly three minutes to sell anyone on the fact that he really has the drive to be Governor. If this video proves anything, it’s that Doug Turner’s campaign will be nothing more than a public relations spectacle. But considering that’s the only experience he has, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. It’s not time for flashy prepackaged candidates; it’s time for a candidate with the experience and vision to lead New Mexico.
