Whether you’re a fan of Sen. Phil Griego or not, chances are you were shocked on Saturday when you heard the news that he had abruptly resigned his Senate seat effective immediately.
Griego, a Democrat who resides in San Miguel County, was elected to the Senate in 1996, and he has easily won re-election ever since.
There’s no question that Griego has had his ups and downs during his 18 years in the Senate. Through it all, he had managed to maintain a strong grip on his Senate seat.
That changed this week.
