Attorney General Candidate Michael Hendricks was the co-author and attorney for amici on the amicus brief that the Supreme Court relied upon in part to find NM Secretary of State did not have the legal authority to promulgate a requirement for straight ticket voting
ALBUQUERQUE: Friday, Michael Hendricks candidate for attorney general, was elated to hear the oral arguments, questions by the justices, and the decision at the New Mexico Supreme Court on Wednesday. It was the brief that he co-authored and was the attorney representing the amici, friends of the court, which included 23 state officials and a libertarian Secretary of State candidate, that was relied upon in part by the justices to come to their 5-0 decision.
ALBUQUERQUE—The Pearce for Governor campaign released a new ad today entitled, “Exposed.” The ad, which cites multiple, highly credible media reports of Grisham’s history of insider dealings and corruption, will air statewide on network and cable television.
Steve Pearce issued the following statement:
“As I travel all across our great state, I hear a consistent theme from New Mexicans from all political backgrounds. They tell me, ‘we are sick and tired of New Mexico politicians who game the system for their personal benefit.’ New Mexicans are tired of it. I'm tired of it. But if New Mexico elects Michelle Lujan Grisham, we'll be stuck with yet another self-serving corrupt politician who's in it for herself - not the people of New Mexico.
LAS CRUCES, NM- Dr. Gavin Clarkson, Republican nominee for Secretary of State, is calling foul on embattled incumbent Maggie Toulouse Oliver’s comments that appear to defend the coverup of the massive voter data breach first made public at Tuesday’s meeting of the Doña Ana Board of County Commissioners.
From today’s Las Cruces Sun News:
Toulouse Oliver defended the clerks’ office response, saying in a prepared statement that it is “engaged in a thorough and proper review of the documents. While some people might wish for a quicker process in all of this, the clerk’s office is demonstrating their commitment to the public interest by waiting until all documents have been reviewed and cataloged before making any announcements.”
When in New Mexico, Torres-Small refuses to be seen with the people bankrolling her campaign.
Albuquerque, NM – Ryan Cangiolosi, the Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico, released the following statement today after Xochitl Torres-Small's attended a scheduled fundraiser with failed 2016 Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton in New York:
Trump Administration’s Policies, Actions, And Rhetoric Betray Values of Hispanic Heritage Month
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chair Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) sent a letter to President Donald J. Trump rejecting his invitation to attend a reception honoring Hispanic Heritage Month and detailing the ways this administration’s rhetoric and actions have stood in stark contrast to the history and values of Hispanic Heritage Month.
SANTA FE- Dr. Gavin Clarkson, Republican nominee for Secretary of State, released the following statement following the unanimous ruling of the New Mexico Supreme Court overturning Maggie Toulouse Oliver’s unilateral straight-party voting decree:
“Today’s unanimous decision is a total victory for the rule of law and for trust in our public institutions. The role of the Secretary of State is not to make law, but to enforce the laws passed by the people’s elected representatives.
Albuquerque, NM -- Ryan Cangiolosi, the Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico, released the following statement today regarding the false and misleading attacks against Yvette Herrell by Xochitl Torres-Small and the DCCC:
"The despicable attacks that were aired today against Yvette Herrell are not only works of pure fiction but also disrespectful to New Mexican voters. This misguided attempt is nothing more than a smokescreen by the DCCC in their attempt to conceal the fact that Xochitl Torres-Small supports taxpayer-funded abortions, a multi-trillion dollar government takeover of healthcare, and further restrictions and regulations on New Mexico's oil and gas industry. Despite these attacks, the 2nd Congressional District knows that Xochitl Torres-Small will be nothing more than a rubberstamp for Nancy Pelosi's radical agenda."

How do we recover?
As the mid-term elections approach, the divisive political rhetoric becomes increasingly hard to ignore. We know most Americans are repulsed by it, yet it continues to be used among many who hold or are seeking political office. What can we do to come together? How can we regain the ability to discuss our differences civilly and with respect for one another? How can we restore rationality?
One topic grabbing headlines recently is a particularly good example of how tragic occurrences can be used to divide us. Sexual harassment is a bullying, threatening behavior used to gain power over another person. Sexual harassment at work, at school, in our government, military or in our churches creates fear, hostility and undermines organizational goals and achievement. It is always unacceptable.
