SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – One state lawmaker is pushing for all eyes to be on New Mexico instead of Iowa during the next presidential primary. Representative Javier Martinez filed a bill to move New Mexico’s primary election to the second Tuesday in January.

The Albuquerque Democrat tweeted, “we’re a much better bellwether state than any other and certainly better than Iowa”. His proposal is not scheduled to be debated during this year’s session.
