This will feature announcements of candidacy of people running for office in 2020, which includes statewide, district, county and municipal elections.
It’s with excitement, pride in our state, and a healthy dose of hope that I write today to announce my candidacy for State Senate, District 28.
It’s a decision I don’t come to lightly.
When I decided to run in 2018, I was told by a Republican leader, “You are not going to win your first race. Be prepared to run at least twice.” That did not stop me from believing in our state and our electoral process. I ran to win, no matter the odds.
We have officially closed our 2018 campaign with the Federal Election Commission.
But now we face a hard reality: The voters of our state still need a U.S. Senator who has real solutions to help New Mexico's families.
As I traveled our state in the 2018 campaign, I came face to face with the real pain and hardship that so many of our people and communities suffer. That experience strengthened my determination to fight for new and better leadership.
So, after much prayer and discussion with my family, I have opened my 2020 campaign for U.S. Senate. I ask for your renewed support – because if good people sit on the sidelines, nothing in New Mexico will change.
Roswell, NM – Claire Chase today announced her candidacy for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, which covers most of New Mexico south of Albuquerque.
“Our state is ranked worst in the nation for education and 50th in child well-being because liberal, career politicians are pushing radical policies that support open borders, undermine the industries that power our economy, and threaten our way of life,” Chase said. “We need a businesswoman, a mother, and a conservative who will step up and fight for good paying jobs, better schools for our kids, and a strong, secure border.”
Albuquerque, NM – Today, Albuquerque attorney and business owner Michael E. Hendricks announced his intentions to seek the Republican nomination for State House District 20. In the highly competitive SE Albuquerque house seat, Hendricks will face incumbent and freshman Representative Abbas Akhil. Hendricks had this to say about the announcement:
“New Mexico is in crisis. We are witnessing a public education system that is failing our children, a stagnant Albuquerque economy, and a staggering lack of leadership. My wife Jodi and I are raising our kids in the community and state we love, but without opportunities for them after they graduate, we worry about them leaving. There is so much potential in our state, but a lack of leadership and representation in Santa Fe has left us wondering, what’s next?
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.
Patrick Cohn Jr., a lifelong resident of Grant County, is seeking election for the Office of Grant County Treasurer in the upcoming 2020 county elections.

This degree emphasized finance principles. He then continued his expertise in banking by attending the Western States School of Banking at NMSU and received a Bank Diploma for his efforts.
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.”
