Brian Colón a candidate for Lt. Governor in New Mexico along with just a little over 500 of his closest friends set out last evening to launch his campaign for Lt. Governor. He will now tour the state and gather support for his bid to become Lt. Governor. Colón was introduced by his lovely wife Aleli Colón and their eleven year old son Rafael.
The crowd was standing room only at the Albuquerque Hotel where many notable elected officials were in attendants. State Auditor Hector Balderas said that he was glad that he and Brian Colón had made the right call when it came to running for Lt. Governor.
It will be more then a little interesting to see the reaction of other Lt. Governor candidates when they find out just how many people showed up for the launch party of the year. There is a wide range of very good candidate for this position but none positioned as well or as well known as Brian Colón.
Diversity was the unintended theme of last evenings party with culture, economic status and yes even party being just a small part of that turn out. Brian Colón also had a large number of young democrats turn out for this launch party. Former Party Chairman Colón clearly knows how to reach out to the younger voters in this state and it would appear that they are reaching back to put him in that seat of power.
Colón made it clear that he supports healthcare reform and public education during the evening. He told on lookers that he would make sure that labor has a seat at the table in Santa Fe when he is elected. A child of humble beginnings Colón told the guess that he understands just how important real educational reform is for this state and that nothing else will push our state forward when it comes to good high paying jobs and future economic development.
