Albuquerque, NM — Today, the Republican Party of New Mexico released the following statement in response to yet another despicable and misleading ad from Xochitl Torres Small:
“Voters aren’t surprised that Xochitl Torres Small is using the same playbook as Senate Democrats by attempting to impugn Yvette Herrell’s good character and reputation,” said Ryan Cangiolosi, chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico. “Now, she is asking for voters across the 2nd District to trust the word of a former disgraced mayor of Alamogordo who left town under the cover of darkness and now lives out of the district. If there is one thing that voters throughout the 2nd district can agree on, it is that they are sick and tired of the desperate attempts of the radical left to influence their vote and choice on who would better represent them in Washington D.C.”
Michelle Lujan Grisham Skips Another Forum
GRANTS, NM–Gubernatorial candidate Steve Pearce shared his vision for New Mexico yesterday with voters in Grants, New Mexico. Meanwhile, Michelle Lujan Grisham chose to skip yet another opportunity to allow voters to hear from her directly, raising questions about her continued unwillingness to face questions over her shady business dealings with Delta Consulting and her ties to former Gov. Bill Richardson's administration.
Earlier this week, Gary Johnson was recorded during a town hall in Chimayo advocating for the elimination of Medicaid in response to a question from a voter in the audience. When the voter pressed Johnson on how his proposal to eliminate Medicaid would cause New Mexicans to die, Johnson shrugged, responded that it, “may be a legitimate concern,” and offered no solution to their concern.
Publicly, Johnson has advocated for non-specific reform and even cutting programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. But at the town hall in Chimayo, Johnson advocated for eliminating Medicaid altogether, despite the idea that people would die if his plan were to be implemented.
Plan to cost typical New Mexicans at least $200 per month more in higher bills, taxes.
As a citizen who wants the best for the people of this state, I am deeply concerned about Michelle Lujan Grisham's plan to increase our solar and wind dependence to 80% by 2040. Based on several estimates of this plan, it would cost typical rate payers at least $200 extra per month in increased taxes or higher electric bills.
This plan, first proposed in 2017 by Rep. Nathan Small in Senate Bill 312, is now the cornerstone of Michelle Lujan Grisham's gubernatorial energy platform.

DEMING – U.S. Senate Candidate Gary Johnson of the New Mexico Libertarian Party shouted bull___t during Republican candidate Mick Rich’s answer to an audience question at the Deming 2018 Chamber Candidate Forum on Thursday hosted by the First United Methodist Church.
ALBUQUERQUE – Michelle Lujan Grisham has allegedly been floating names for potential cabinet nominees. Lujan Grisham has not only taken the governor’s race for granted, but she’s signaled to New Mexicans that she will make absolutely no effort to work in a bipartisan manner by floating the names of far-left partisan insiders like radical environmentalist Garrett VeneKlasen and corrupt State Representative Bill McCamley.
Socorro County Commissioner Glen Duggins Endorses Steve Pearce After False Claim He Endorsed Lujan Grisham
ALBUQUERQUE—Socorro County Commissioner Glen Duggins today endorsed Steve Pearce for Governor following a false claim last week by Michelle Lujan Grisham that he had endorsed her.
"I'd like to clear something up: I fully support Steve Pearce for Governor. It's disappointing that Michelle Lujan Grisham chose to mislead voters by including my name in a list of endorsements without my agreement or permission. Steve Pearce is the only candidate in this race who will create jobs, fix education, solve poverty, and tackle crime. That's why I'm proud to publicly endorse him today for Governor of New Mexico," said Duggins.
New Mexico Democrat gubernatorial nominee Michelle Luan Grisham is once again getting called out for her blatant hypocrisy and insincere political posturing.
A new editorial from the Albuquerque Journal at https://www.abqjournal.com/1223522/lujan-grisham-earns-red-card-for-unm-pandering.html blasts Lujan Grisham for “pandering” to different audiences on the University of New Mexico’s recent athletic program budget cuts.
At a recent gubernatorial forum, Lujan Grisham pledged to provide new “oversight” of the University to “restore” the cuts. But “just days later,” when speaking to the Albuquerque Journal, Lujan Grisham completely changed her tune, calling for “independent” regents who “work without political goals.”
Lujan Grisham’s phony rhetoric on education cuts shows once again that she can’t be trusted to “make tough calls” or to keep her word to voters.
