Mr. Sinclair is one savvy politician, something we have not seen here as of late. He went and found an "undersheriff candidate" Leonard Baca who is the son of our County Clerk, Freda Baca. This is in an effort to woo two distinct voter blocks with whom Mr. Sinclair would have had a lot of problems. The Hispanics and the Democrats. Mr. Sinclair knows he would have to get more votes than the Republicans in the county if he even wants a shot at the position. He needs a few Hispanics and a few Democrats. Mr. Sinclair somehow convinced Mr. Leonard Baca to join him.
I am not sure Mr. Trujillo saw this coming. Now Mr. Sinclair has a person in the form of Leonard Baca who can speak to the Democrats and Hispanics one to one. Mr. Sinclair, a Republican, must have read up on some New Mexico political history. This will definitely complicate Mr. Trujillos efforts.
Some folks want new blood, some want local experience. Mr. Trujillo wants to change the whole department, sortta like a new blood candidate. Mr. Sinclair wants to just continue with the department as it is as he likes the way it has been working, sortta like an old hand.
Both have disturbing history, Mr. Trujillo was acquitted of tipping of a drug dealer on a pending drug bust. Very disturbing, even with the acquittal.
Mr. Sinclair has been a dead beat dad in the past needing to get sued by an ex wife to support his children. That is horrible for any man, much less one running for Sheriff.
Only in America ladies and gentelmen.
