Dem county official blasted for saying people are being shot because of ‘the shape of their face’

During the closing remarks at Thursday’s Sandoval County Commission meeting, first-term Democrat Commissioner Katherine A. Bruch of the First District made eyebrow-raising comments regarding mass shootings, claiming recent uses of guns to kill can be attributed to the “color” of peoples’ skin and “the shape of their face.” 

Across the country, the media has been fixated on crimes involving Asian American and Pacific Islanders after a gunman in Atlanta, Georgia shot up multiple massage parlors where he killed eight people, including people of multiple races. It has been surmised that the shootings were tied to sex addiction, not racial hatred.

Bruch said during the meeting, “This has kinda been a hard week in many ways with more mass shootings and even longer than that, with certain communities being assaulted more directly and I know I have some family members that fall into some categories that are more visible for whatever reason and I am just very saddened that we are having these individuals that are—for whatever reason—going out and shooting or assaulting people because of the color of their skin and the shape of their face.” 

“So, I just want you all to remember them in your thoughts and prayers, and then let’s get to work and let’s do something more effective than thinking about them by getting serious about helping with mental health, making sure that we provide the correct training and tools for our law enforcement, and that we are regulating the possession of weapons by those who have no business owning them,” she concluded. 

Second-term Republican Commissioner Jay Block of the Second District chimed in on the conversation after Bruch’s assessment regarding the need for more gun bans amid shootings. He took exception to her comments regarding face shape because he has children who are interracial. 

He said, “I am not sure what the ‘shape of their face’ means. We all have different shapes of faces unless you’re talking about my kids who are interracial. I don’t know. I would maybe change those words a little bit.” 

This is just the latest racially questionable comment made by a Democrat politician in recent weeks after Democrat nominee for Congress, state Rep. Melanie Stansbury (D-Bernalillo) said that displaced Navajo workers who would be losing their good-paying jobs “can sell their art or their wool” instead, insinuating that Native American workers can somehow shift focus in their job prospects to another field that Stansbury stereotypically decided was arts and crafts. 

An Easter Sunday reflection on Gov. Lujan Grisham’s hostility toward people of faith

Today is Easter Sunday, and although the strict COVID-19 restrictions from Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham have been slightly amended, New Mexico remains one of the six states on “advisory” status, one of the few with mandatory mask mandates, and some businesses still shuttered.

On Holy Saturday 2020, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham made a proclamation that all in-person Easter church services of five or greater were banned, effectively stopping New Mexicans from attending church on Easter Sunday. 

She said she wanted to make “absolutely clear that mass gatherings of any type are not permitted in houses of worship.” She continued, “We know that you want to practice your faith, as you should. But this year we must remember that home is holy. The best thing you can do for your community is to stay there.”

Gov. Lujan Grisham had completely shuttered church services on a state level, however, abortion clinics were allowed to stay wide open, despite health concerns.

Then, on Easter, the Governor made a “proclamation” from the Governor’s mansion, writing on Twitter, “This Easter, home is the holy place. I expect all New Mexicans to stay safe by staying home to celebrate, not gathering with friends and family. Together, we will have a safe and happy Easter – by staying apart. BUT tell the kids not to worry: the Easter Bunny is essential!” 

She “expected” New Mexicans to just throw their faith out the door to comply with her mandates. Throughout the lockdowns, the Governor’s religious persecution continued.

Then in May, on Mother’s Day, Gov. Lujan Grisham sent out her State Police to serve a cease and desist order to Truth or Consequences pastor, Dr. Caleb Cooper.

“Here’s a notice that we need to get through, and it’s a cease and desist order,” said the officer serving the order. When Cooper asked why he was being served the order, the officer responded, “for violating the public health order,” citing the May 2nd church service held at the church.

Pastor Jeff Carr of Mesa Baptist Church in Rio Rancho was told by the Governor’s Office that while in-person services were prohibited, he could still hold “online services, drive-in services where people remain in the car with their windows rolled up… or listen to a radio service, honk their horns for ‘Amen!’ and so on.”

But others fought back, such as Legacy Church in Albuquerque which sued the state and remained under scrutiny by the Governor and the liberal media for living out their faith through fellowship in their church.

Las Cruces Bishop Peter Baldacchin instructed his diocese that “While it is true that we need to take every reasonable precaution to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, it is equally true that we offer the greatest ‘essential service’ to our people. The past few weeks have brought to light many unintended consequences of the ‘stay-at-home’ order.” 

This Easter, the struggles still remain, with the Faithful being instructed by the Governor to “celebrate safely” and important traditions such as the pilgrimage to El Santuario de Chimayó are being prohibited. But people of faith are not backing down, and should never forget Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s hostility toward them. New Mexico is a state founded upon faith and its people have proven they will not take kindly to persecution.

NM House GOP Whip rips Dem state Rep. Stansbury’s anti-Navajo racism in fiery letter

Last week, Republican House Whip Rod Montoya (R-San Juan) ripped into Democrats for their use of victimization to shut down debate during this past legislative session, using terms like “marginalized peoples,” “institutional racism,” and “implicit bias” to silence opposition to their extremist bills.

In the letter, Montoya said, the divisiveness from Democrats has hit “obscene” levels. He said, “Acts of violent racism must be dealt with, however, each time racism is used as a catch phrase, it undermines the gravity and legitimacy of real victims of racist acts.” 

“Not only has this tactic been used to chill debate, it has been used to justify advancement of policies that are harmful to minority communities. It is infuriating to hear legislators say that Navajo coal miners who make $80,000 a year are somehow better off without a job because it slows climate change. To further call them victims of systemic racism, while they stand in unemployment lines, is nothing more than gaslighting,” wrote Montoya.

He made sure to focus on Rep. Stansbury’s racist comment toward Navajos, writing, “If this were not bad enough, absolutely zero attention was paid to the racially insensitive comments made by Representative Stansbury. When she was asked how these Navajo workers were going to replace their high paying jobs, she flippantly said ‘they can sell their art or their wool.’”

“Why were these comments not plastered all over social media or in local news? I can only surmise that her comments were ignored because she is a ‘well-meaning,’ white, progressive Democrat who is running for Congress.”

Montoya added, “Her comments, and many others for that matter, speak volumes to the condescending and paternalistic racism that has invaded the Democrat Party. If she were a Republican, demands would have been made for an immediate apology for her comments and she would have been asked to resign.” 

Montoya noted how “incredibly insulting” it is for “elitists” to think minorities are incapable of survival without their aid. “As a Hispanic who is married to a Native American, and having raised four children in New Mexico, I maintain that our successes and failures are our own, even when progressives pass laws that kill jobs and disincentivize hard work and success. It is the very essence of racism to pass laws that undermine self-sufficiency,” he wrote.

Montoya also touched on the use of gender to create division in the Roundhouse, particularly regarding Pro Tem Mimi Stewart, who claimed she was being attacked by a male Democrat colleague for asking her basic questions about her bill. 

“I thought that being a victim was directly related to a lack of power. Senator Stewart is not a powerless victim in this legislative body,” wrote Montoya, noting how “she determines all committee assignments, as well as every chairmanship.” 

“Progressives have crossed the Rubicon of using patronizing language, and unfortunately too many people now believe their future is in someone else’s hands,” he wrote. “If progressive Democrats are determined to continue this demeaning and dangerous tactic, we should perhaps change the words of our New Mexico pledge of allegiance to reflect, ‘… perfect disunity among divided cultures.’ I, however, have another idea. Traditional New Mexicans need to take back our state from outside influences that divide us over every tiny difference, and instead find common ground despite our differences. I think this new concept is called tolerance,” concluded Montoya.

The letter comes after one of the most divisive and corrosive legislative sessions in modern New Mexico history, with Democrats ramming through bills with little to no debate. If debate was, in fact, afforded, Democrats shut down the public from speaking and accused fellow members of racism and sexism at every other turn. 

During the legislative session and the subsequent Governor-commissioned special session, Democrats rammed through abortion up-to-birth and infanticide, assisted suicide via lethal drug “cocktails,” tax hikes, recreational weed legalization, raiding of the Permanent Fund to fund taxpayer-funded “free” daycare, mandates on small businesses to provide unaffordable benefits, a bill that will line civil litigation attorneys’ pockets and bankrupt local communities, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Rep. Melanie Stansbury, who is a far-left Democrat from Bernalillo County, has been chosen as the Democrats’ nominee for Congress despite her racist statements toward Navajos. 

MLG’s Oil Conservation Commission passes new extreme regulations on the oil and gas industry

On Thursday, the three-member New Mexico Oil Conservation Commission voted unanimously on new rules that will severely handicap the oil and gas industry in regards to emission standards due to venting and flaring, according to a report from Bloomberg News.

Gas producing plants, oil companies, and pipeline operators will have until 2026 to reduce their gas emissions to 2% of production. “The two counties that make up the New Mexico part of the Permian have seen flaring and venting soar as drillers move past legacy acreage in Texas to the newer — and gassier — Delaware sub-basin,” reports Bloomberg. 

According to the report, the rules are a “compromise” between regulators, industry, and environmentalists to curb methane emissions. The Commission’s vote on Thursday follows two years of debate and two weeks of public comment in January. The new rules are expected to go into effect in May.

The commissioners include Adrienne Sandoval of the Conservation Division, who serves as the chair, Dr. Thomas Engler of New Mexico Tech, and Greg Bloom, Assistant Commissioner for Mineral Resources at the New Mexico State Land Office. 

According to a spokesman for the New Mexico Oil and Gas Association, which has stayed neutral on many job-killing anti-energy bills said, “We will strive for full compliance with the final rule, and we commend this commission for undertaking a collaborative approach throughout this two-year process.”

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department secretary Sarah Propst claimed the new rule, “creates a level playing field for the industry.” She also said, “Some companies are already investing in that takeaway capacity upfront and doing everything right while others maybe aren’t because they didn’t have to before.”

These new rules will heavily impact drilling and production on federal lands. According to radical leftist environmental group Environmental Defense Fund’s Daniel Grossman, “The Trump administration rolled back strong regulations.” He said, “But now with the Biden administration, that’s probably something that the Department of the Interior will address with the new leadership of [Interior] Secretary Deb Haaland, who is from New Mexico and understands the issue better than most.”

Haaland is an extremist when it comes to oil and gas, favoring a complete ban on fracking, which produces clean natural gas and fuels New Mexico’s economy. The Governor’s commission and its new ruling makes it clear that the oil and gas industry, which produces nearly 40% of revenues for the state budget, is in danger of extinction if Lujan Grisham gets her way.

Failed ex-Rep. Torres Small joins PAC to oust ‘seditionist, Trump-loving GOP’ House members

On Thursday, failed ex-Rep. Xochitl Torres Small, a far-left extremist former member of the House of Representatives, announced she is joining a political action committee called “Shield PAC,” which aims to help vulnerable Democrat incumbents in Congress and pick up seats in the 2022 midterms.

According to the Washington Post, the PAC will try to “inoculate their most vulnerable incumbents from the type of attacks that proved so effective in 2020, when they lost seats in the House.” 

The PAC will help people like vulnerable Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), another far-left member of the House, who claims to be “moderate,” despite his abysmal voting record of voting with socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) nearly 90% of the time. He votes with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over 93% of the time, according to ProPublica. 

Shield PAC aims to “shield” these so-called “moderate” Democrats from supposed “false” attacks by Republicans branding leftist extremists like Lamb and ex-Rep. Torres Small as “radicals, using politically toxic positions they don’t hold.” 

According to the PAC website, it claims that if these Democrats don’t keep their seats, “the seditionist, Trump-loving GOP will take over the House.” These extreme attacks from a supposed “moderate” Democrat PAC show that these calls for moderation appear to be merely smoke and mirrors. 

Torres Small wrote on her Twitter, “Honesty and facts matter. That’s why I’m proud to help launch Shield PAC, an effort to support House moderates by telling the truth about their work and defending against partisan lies.” 

The announcement comes after a bitter race between her and current Congresswoman Yvette Herrell, who had a resounding victory over Torres Small in 2020 following many instances of fraud in the 2018 race where Herrell supposedly “lost” due to late-night statistically impossible Democrat-heavy absentee ballot dumps in Doña Ana County. 

Torres Small supported socialist taxpayer-funded “free” college, amnesty for criminal aliens, New Mexico’s “mini” Green New Deal, and bills that would put men in women’s bathrooms. When I asked her directly to address her refusal to support a bill giving basic medical care for babies born alive after botched abortions, she stood by her infanticide stance. Torres Small also voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump, which likely was the final nail in her coffin. 

It is unclear if Torres Small will try another run for the Second District, but her extreme rhetoric claiming President Donald Trump supporters are “seditionist, Trump-loving GOP” members are certainly not calls for “unity” by any means.

Glorieta Camps reportedly no longer likely to house illegal migrant kids from Biden’s border crisis

On Thursday, it was reported that the Glorieta Camps were no longer preparing to house illegal migrant children, according to a release from the organization. Earlier in the week, it was reported that they were preparing to take in thousands of illegal migrant youth from Joe Biden’s border crisis. 

“We are very encouraged by all of our partners that we could be an excellent location to support these children if needed in the near future,” the news release said. “At this point all donations and supplies will be held until we receive confirmation if or when we may become a host site in the future.

“It has been great to work with the Office of the Governor, the Health and Human Services Department, [the Federal Emergency Management Agency], Homeland Security, senators, representatives, and the other agencies that are ready to serve these kids in need, and we’re grateful to the state government agencies in New Mexico that would have assisted in an oversight role,” the statement continued.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, “A spokeswoman for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said the state would assist in oversight of such an effort” to house migrant children in New Mexico. “Currently, she said, state officials ‘don’t know whether or where other sites might be.’” 

According to the Washington Post, more than 8,500 unaccompanied illegal alien children and teens were being housed in Department of Health and Human Services shelters, and a record-setting 3,500 children were backlogged at a Border Patrol station, as of March 10. That number has likely skyrocketed since. 

Over the past few weeks, Joe Biden has been blasted for his failure to control the ravaging of New Mexico’s southern border after he encouraged these criminal alien children to cross into the United States with his weak immigration messaging.

Many illegal immigrants flooding into the U.S. can be seen wearing Joe Biden shirts and holding Joe Biden flags with the messaging “Please Let Us In” written on them. 

There are thousands of illegal migrant children currently in federal custody who are in cramped makeshift holding cells while other children are being housed in metal prison-like boxes outside. 

More and more illegal migrant children are being smuggled into the U.S. each day due to Biden’s failed border policies. One video shows two toddlers smuggled from Equador being dropped over a 14-foot-high border barrier by a smuggler.

Early in her term, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham left the border defenseless when she removed the New Mexico National Guard troops stationed near the border who were assisting the Department of Homeland Security. 

Previously, Gov. Lujan Grisham claimed President Trump “failed” in his response to the border crisis despite him bolstering the border with resources, leading to fewer people crossing the border illegally. Trump had lower deportation numbers than the Obama administration, which Biden was a part of.

Dem-dominated Legislature rams through extreme recreational weed bill heavily subsidizing Big Pot

On Wednesday, the New Mexico Legislature passed Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s radical recreational marijuana legalization bill, which will give the green light to the use of the illicit drug in the State of New Mexico, a major blow to commerce, law enforcement, and child safety in the state.

The New Mexico Senate passed the Senate by a vote of 22-15, with two Democrat senators, Bobby Gonzales (D-Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe, and Taos) and Shannon Pinto (D-McKinley & San Juan), voting with Republicans against it.

The Governor called the bill’s passage by the Legislature a “significant victory for New Mexico,” writing that “Workers will benefit from the opportunity to build careers in this new economy. Entrepreneurs will benefit from the opportunity to create lucrative new enterprises. The state and local governments will benefit from the additional revenue. Consumers will benefit from the standardization and regulation that comes with a bona fide industry.” 

However, the most such a bill would bring in to the state would be peanuts compared to the bloated state budget that currently sits at $7.4 billion. Proceeds from the sale of recreational marijuana would only contribute a maximum of 0.204% of the state’s needed budget or $15.1 million in the best year.

According to one report, “The state would levy a 12% excise tax on sales to start, and the tax would grow to 18% over time. Gross receipts taxes would also be added on, pushing the total tax rate to 20% to 26% overall.” 

Both chambers of the Legislature also adopted separate legislation to subsidize the Big Pot industry with $7 million in cash, despite the Governor claiming the industry would bring in money to the state. 

The vehicle used to push through weed, H.B. 2, co-sponsored by Rep. Javier Martinez (D-Bernalillo) and Sen. Katy Duhigg (D-Bernalillo), was ultimately voted on to move forward over Sen. Cliff Pirtle’s (R-Chaves, Eddy, and Otero) competing proposal, which died.

Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Doña Ana), who was conveniently absent for the final vote on H.B. 2, said, “This bill is not ready, this policy is not ready, New Mexico is not ready,” showing his concern that legalization will do more harm than good in a state plagued by drug and alcohol addiction.

“We’re not really genuinely here to debate the bill or improve the bill,” said Sen. Cervantes, D-Las Cruces. “We’re here to pass the bill.”

The Senate Democrats decisively killed just every amendment to their radical bill proposed by Republicans. Thankfully for minors in New Mexico, the previous language in prior bills allowing parents to legally provide cannabis to children under 21 was removed from the currency legislation.

The bill, however, allows adults over 21 to grow their own pot plants for personal use up to six for personal use and twelve for household use, which will expose children and minors to marijuana.

After the Senate passed the controversial bill following its first passage in the House, the House voted to concur on the bill. It now goes to Gov. Lujan Grisham’s desk, where she is no doubt happily waiting to sign the extreme measure. New Mexico is the 16th state to legalize recreational dope, following New York and fourteen other states. 

BernCo GOP ED turned down voter registration help from pro-Trump activist Scott Presler

On Wednesday, conservative firebrand activist Scott Presler announced that he would visit the great state of New Mexico on July 31, 2021, for a rally and to help with voter registration efforts. Presler is well-known for his volunteer work cleaning up Baltimore and other Democrat-heavy areas plagued with poverty and violence. 

He has been an outspoken pro-Trump activist who has pledged to fight against “Republicans in name only” or “RINOs” and register more Republicans to win elections across the nation. 

Now, Presler is coming to New Mexico to help the Land of Enchantment drain the swamp. He is teaming up with New Mexico activists, including Tammy Martinez, Audrey Trujillo, and others to turn the state around. On Twitter, Presler wrote, “I’m coming to New Mexico, but it wasn’t easy. Woman I’m working w/ reached out to her Republican Party & the exec. dir. said they have voter registration under control. Turning down free help in states you don’t win elections — smart. Not naming names. Truth will come out.” 

He added, “If you live in the Albuquerque, NM, area, please mark your calendar for Saturday, July 31st. We’re putting on an event with or without the help of the Republican Party, since they have things “under control.”

On Twitter, many have named Bernalillo County GOP chair Julie Wright and anti-Trump Bernalillo County GOP executive director Geoffrey Snyder as the culprits behind the snub of Presler. Wright previously defended Snyder after he came under fire for calling pro-Trump activists in New Mexico “Nazis.” 

The Piñon Post reached out to Wright for comment, where she defensively asked why I was inquiring about the matter. She apparently claims to not have directly spoken with Presler, however, has not disclosed whether Snyder or any other Bernalillo County GOP relayed such information.

The Piñon Post now learned that Geoffrey Snyder was the one who snubbed Presler’s voter registration help in an email to Tammy Martinez, asking for other volunteers and monetary contributions instead.

He wrote the following in an email dated March 24, 2021:

I’m very glad you reached out to us.  I trust that our 2nd Vice Chair, Dauneen Dolce, has contacted you by now regarding our operation.  It’s definitely our goal to elect candidates who are as conservative as possible and I appreciate you bringing Mr. Presler to our attention.

Our Party currently has a whole host of voter registrars who are capable of registering new voters.  What we currently do not have is the funding to pay for a full scale voter registration drive.  However, even if we did have that money, a registration drive is required by NM law to register voters from any Party.

Because any operation we implement must keep our candidates’ best interests in mind, we won’t be dedicating our resources to voter registration efforts until we can implement a program that is specifically tailored towards helping our candidates.

Our current operations revolve, specifically, around grassroots volunteer recruitment, fundraising to cover Party costs, and soon will involve assisting candidates in their goals of 1) getting on the ballot for this Fall’s municipal and school board elections, and 2) getting the necessary contributions to achieve their goal publicly funding their campaigns.

To be blunt, we need volunteers and donations, as well as people to join our efforts at gathering volunteers and donations.  We hope you will find the time to assist us!

Thanks so much,

NM abortionist loses court battle after having botched abortion victim arrested

On Wednesday, Abortion On Trial (AOT), a pro-life New Mexico-based group announced that charges for a woman who was arrested at “Women’s Reproductive Clinic” in Sunland Park were dropped.

According to the group, the woman going by “Jane Doe” was arrested on September 1, 2020 after she returned with the body of her deceased baby who was delivered at home following a botched surgical abortion at the facility.

“Jane went to the clinic in physical pain and emotional panic in order to get help, answers, and her medical records. The abortion provider, Dr. Franz Theard, refused to speak with Jane and instead fled the scene in his car after instructing police be called on her.” 

“After the abortion facility illegally took custody of her baby’s body, police arrested both Jane and her husband. Jane’s husband’s charges were later dropped but Jane’s remained,” the press release reads.

Sidewalk advocates from Southwest Coalition for Life were on-scene that day, however, and made sure that she had proper medical care following her botched abortion and home delivery. Abortion On Trial’s attorney, Mike Seibel, also got involved and took immediate steps to defend Jane against the abortionist.

“It took more than 120 days for Women’s Reproductive Clinic to release Jane’s medical records to her. That delay resulted in even more court battles as AOT’s attorney, Mike Siebel, sought to hold Women’s Reproductive Clinic in contempt of a court order. Women’s reproductive clinic responding to that attempt with proposed sanctions against Mr. Seibel,” according to AOT.

Later, the charges against Jane were “dismissed without prejudice” and the proposed sanctions against Mr. Seibel and request for Women’s Reproductive Clinic to have their legal fees paid for were denied, a victory for Jane and for the pro-life movement. 

“Jane’s case is the beginning of fighting back against the bullying women so often experience before and after abortion. Franz Theard and his staff now know that people will push back and stand up for the women they previously got away with mistreating. Women watching this case now know that people will stand beside them in a battle against corrupt doctors. This may not be the last we see of Jane and her story, but it is the last we will see of Franz Theard harming women without being actively opposed,” wrote Abortion On Trial. 

“We hope Jane’s story will continue to spread as a beacon of awareness and precaution to those considering abortion,” said AOT Executive Director, Jamie Jeffries. “We hope those who oppose abortion see this case and realize just how much women need compassionate care after abortion. And we hope those who support providers like Franz Theard see this case and realize who is having women arrested at abortion clinics…and who is fighting for them when that happens.”

Dems tap far-left extremist Melanie Stansbury as nominee to replace Deb Haaland in Congress

On Wednesday, the Democrat Party of New Mexico announced that their central committee had nominated state Rep. Melanie Stansbury (D-Bernalillo) to be their nominee for Congress in the First Congressional District to replace Deb Haaland, who recently was elevated to be secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. 

Stansbury won on a second-round ballot by a tight margin, beating state Sen. Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez (D-Bernalillo) by a mere 6 votes. Stansbury got 103 votes to Sedillo-Lopez’s 97. Only one member of the committee abstained from voting.

On the first round of balloting, Sedillo-Lopez won but did not get a 50% majority of the votes, with 74 votes to Stansbury’s 43.

After the vote, New Mexico Democrat Party Chair Marg Elliston said, “We are so excited to support Melanie Stansbury in the race to become New Mexico’s next strong Democratic representative.” She added, “Her dedication, compassion, and forward-thinking policies are exactly what New Mexicans are looking for in a leader. We look forward to turning out Democrats across this district and electing Representative Stansbury to carry on the legacy of Secretary Haaland by moving our state and our nation toward a brighter future.” 

According to the Democrat Party of New Mexico release, Stansbury “is running for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District to lift up the voices of our communities and tackle our biggest challenges from economic development, to food and water security, to climate change.” 

The Republican Party of New Mexico, run by former congressman Steve Pearce responded to the news, writing, “Rep. Stansbury is one of the most radical lawmakers in this state. She is simply out of touch with the needs of New Mexico.” 

He added, “It’s imperative that voters understand that her views are anti-New Mexico. She wants to ban fracking, supports anti-law enforcement legislation and consistently pushes for more spending and higher taxes on our constituents. She systematically votes with lawmakers who support leftist policies. In Washington Stansbury would vote for similar radical policies that align with the most extreme elements of the Democratic Party, and this will cause irreparable damage to our great state. Our economy and way of life will be threatened. Is this who New Mexicans want representing them in Washington?”

Stansbury will face off against the Republican nominee, moderate state Sen. Mark Moores (R-Bernalillo) in a June 1 special election.
