Politics: Enter at your own risk

HOBBS, NM – The Newman campaign announced today it raised $316,760 in the first six weeks since entering the race for New Mexico's 2nd Congressional District. The campaign will report $311,456 cash on hand in its first FEC filing. Monty Newman entered the race on August 14 promising to fight for conservative values.

Monty Newman said, "The outpouring of support for my campaign from New Mexicans across the 2nd District means a lot to me and my family. New Mexico families are struggling and we need to continue having a strong, conservative voice representing us in Washington. I intend to work hard every day to be that voice for our New Mexico values."

Albuquerque N.M. – In response to recent calls for increased funding for the Bernalillo County District Attorney's office, Rep. Antonio "Moe" Maestas (D-Albuquerque), Chair of the Interim Legislative Criminal Justice Reform Subcommittee, released the following statement.

"We get the criminal justice system we pay for. After seven years of starving the criminal justice system, I'm glad to hear the Governor is realizing we must increase funding for the Bernalillo County DA's Office. Crimes on the books are meaningless unless we devote the funding needed to successfully prosecute these cases. The Governor's repeated vetoes of commonsense revenue increases are not reasonable in 2017 and have starved the system designed to keep crime under control. We must invest in keeping our communities safe."

Roswell – Representative Candy Ezzell called today for an investigation of OLÉ Education Fund. OLÉ, which purports to advocate early childhood education initiatives, announced yesterday that it had released a series of political ads aimed at gubernatorial candidate Steve Pearce for his position on public lands. The ads are part of a dark money effort called ‘Step Up Steve,’ a partisan attack group that is attempting to influence New Mexico’s governor’s race.

Rep. Ezzell is asking the Attorney General and State Auditor to investigate whether OLÉ has violated its charter and its nonprofit tax status by diverting funds from children’s education initiatives to pay for political attacks despite its stated mission as a grassroots organizing non-profit and classification as a 501(c)(3).

Albuquerque – The Republican Party of New Mexico released the following statement after Dan Lewis advanced to the mayoral runoff to face progressive politician Tim Keller.

"Albuquerque voters will have a very clear choice on November 15," said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. "Dan Lewis is a job creator who will strengthen our economy, make our city safer, and move Albuquerque forward. Tim Keller is a progressive politician who supported the job-killing sick leave ordinance that will hurt our economy when we can least afford it and did nothing to make his community safer when he represented the senate district with the highest crime rate in the state.

Albuquerque – The Republican Party of New Mexico made the following statement after Albuquerque voters defeated the so-called 'Healthy Workforce' ordinance.

"This job-killing measure was drafted by New York attorneys and supported by politicians like Tim Keller who would rather advance a progressive agenda than move Albuquerque forward," said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. "Voters made the right decision by voting against a measure that would have hurt our city when we could least afford it and hurt the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy."

Albuquerque – The Republican Party of New Mexico made the following statement after Robert Aragon advanced to the runoff for the District 5 seat on the Albuquerque City Council.

"Robert Aragon articulated a clear vision for Albuquerque's future and voters rewarded him for his message and his hard work," said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. "We will work hard to help make Robert the next councilor for District 5 so he can fight for our community and make Albuquerque a stronger, safer city."
