Denish Says Voters Should Approve Constitutional Ammendent

Before last night's historic nomination Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish, who's a Super Delegate in Denver, took time to give us "the word" on how she feels about possibly being elevated to governor in six months.

If Barack Obama moves into 1600 Pennsylvania in January and invites Governor Bill Richardson to be a part of his administration then Denish will automatically become Governor of New Mexico.

A constitutional amendment will be on the ballot for voters to consider this fall. It finally address a process that has been overlooked for years, who gets to appoint her successor in the Lt. Governor's Office. Currently the constitution is silent on the matter. Denish believes the amendment should be passed because even if Richardson stays there should be a seamless succession process identified.
