From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

Aug. 25, 1968: The campaign manager of New Mexico Democratic gubernatorial candidates seem to agree on one point — Fabian Chavez is the man to beat in the primary election Tuesday.

The men who manage New Mexico’s aspirants to the governor’s mansion were polled by the Associated Press and generally agreed Chavez would run a close second to their own candidate.

As could be expected, all the campaign managers predicted their own man would win, but they all agreed that Chavez would be second.

The exception, of course, was Chavez’ campaign manger, who predicted victory.

Gov. David Cargo, involved in his own primary election battle with Clifford Hawley, predicts Chavez will win the Democratic nomination.

Aug. 25, 1993: Public health officials are anticipating another outbreak of hantavirus this fall, when cold weather drives deer mice — the carriers of the virus — indoors and into closer contact with humans.
