ALBUQUERQUE – Nancy Pelosi's tax hike tour comes to New Mexico today, with an appearance in Santa Fe to remind voters that Democrats are committed to rolling back the sweeping tax cut recently passed into law and ending pay raises and bonuses for workers. Pelosi already said at a similar event earlier this week that her party would repeal the tax bill, effectively raising taxes on millions of American families:
"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed Wednesday that Democrats will rework the GOP tax bill if they successfully retake the House in the 2018 midterm elections…According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, the average household will receive a tax cut of $1,610 in 2018. Only 5 percent of taxpayers will see increased taxes in 2018…'It's not about chipping at this piece or that piece, it's about a comprehensive look at what our tax policy should be for the future,' she added."

ALBUQUERQUE – Earlier today, a district court judge ruled against New Mexico Democrats in their desperate attempt to disenfranchise voters and take away their choice by removing Republican Rep. Sharon Clahchischilliage from the ballot.
“Democratic Party leaders are doing everything they can to rig the political process and take choices away from voters,” said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. “They resorted to filing frivolous lawsuits because they know they can’t win a fair fight against an outstanding candidates like Sharon Clahchischilliage. The fact that they are targeting elected women and Native American leaders with these underhanded tactics simply because they won’t fall in line with the Democrats’ partisan agenda makes their actions even more shameful. Voters deserve the opportunity to cast a ballot for the best candidate but New Mexico Democratic Party leadership is more concerned about seizing power at any cost.
Primary elections in New Mexico won't take place until June 5, but Democratic candidates in the races for Governor and Land Commissioner are already embracing radical gun control measures and proudly touting their anti-freedom records in Congress and the Roundhouse in their campaigns.
In the Democratic primary for governor, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham touts her record of co-sponsoring key gun control measures as a member of the U.S House and joining part in the 26-hour congressional sit-in to demand action on such bills. Her campaign’s "Action Plan to Combat New Mexico Gun Violence" contains a host of gun control proposals to restrict your rights, which includes:
ALBUQUERQUE – Michelle Lujan Grisham has done everything in her power to run from criticism after she apparently discriminated against and fired a transgender intern. Rather than owning up to her actions and apologizing to the former intern for her actions, which could lead to a Congressional investigation, Lujan Grisham instead filed a restraining order so she wouldn't have to face accountability for her discrimination.

In response to the derogatory comments made by Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) about same-sex marriage, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) issued this statement:
“I am extremely troubled by Rep. Steve Pearce’s comments about same-sex marriage. His suggestion that legalizing same sex marriage would lead to polygamy and widespread fraud, with couples marrying simply to gain healthcare benefits, is deeply offensive. Further, Rep. Pearce’s statement trivializes AIDS and perpetuates damaging, worn-out stereotypes.
