SANTA FE – Marco Serna hopes that real, hoofed horse power is better than mechanical horsepower, as in muscle car engine size.
Serna, the Santa Fe district attorney who is running for the U.S. House seat from northern New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District, has issued his first campaign video that is a take-off on one previously released by one of his Democratic primary opponents, former CIA operative and author Valerie Plame.
Serna rides a horse in his video and mocks Plame for driving a Chevy Camaro backwards in her movie-trailer style ad.
Serna also goes on the attack against Plame on a couple of issues. In a statement Wednesday, she called his criticisms “Republican talking points” like those she faced in the past from the George W. Bush/Dick Cheney administration.
