I’m Norm Wheeler and I ask for your support as I run for District Attorney of the Sixth Judicial District in the upcoming election. I don’t profess to be a politician and never expected to run for office, but I believe that I have reached a time in my career where it is important to give back to the community. I do not believe the position of District Attorney should be a political position. Its function should be performed based on an aggressive, intelligent analysis of facts, which are then applied to the law; not based upon who we know. Keeping that in mind I will share some information about me.

LAS CRUCES, NEW MEXICO – Local businessman, Chris Mathys, has announced his entry into the Republican primary for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives, the People’s House.

Mathys brings over thirty-eight years of business experience to serve New Mexicans in the 2nd Congressional District. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker in New Mexico, Colorado, California, and Wyoming. He owns and operates Mathys Properties located in Las Cruces, NM, and owns Oro Financial in Fresno, CA.

LAS CRUCES, NM- Former Trump administration official and New Mexico State University business professor Dr. Gavin Clarkson became the first Republican to announce for New Mexico’s open U.S. Senate seat today. Sen. Tom Udall announced last month he will retire rather than seek a third six-year term next year.

“My story is quite different from most people who spend their lives climbing the political stepladder aspiring to be another career politician,” Clarkson said. “I'm a tribal member whose orphaned father went from living out of trash cans to being the first Native American to fly a jet. I have a law degree, an MBA, and a Doctorate in Business Administration. I’ve taught for two decades as a conservative in higher education and been illegally fired for it, and I've served as an economic development official in the Trump administration in the heart of the swamp.”

ALAMOGORDO - Today, Yvette Herrell announced her candidacy for Congress in New Mexico’s Second District and released the following statement:

"Wages are growing at the fastest pace since 2009, Hispanic and African American unemployment are at record lows, our energy sector is thriving, and 2018 was the best year for manufacturing jobs in 20 years," said Herrell. "Yet liberal politicians like Xochitl Torres Small are doing nothing but “resisting” efforts to make our country a better place for all Americans.

Torres Small's very first votes -- for Nancy Pelosi and against protecting our country with common sense border security -- proved that her campaign promise to “work with anyone” was just a cynical attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of the voters.
