On Wednesday it was reported by the Santa Fe New Mexican that Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, Rep. Ben Ray Luján, former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, and others joined a fundraising call for Joe Biden to gin up his support among Hispanic and Latino voters.
However, during the call, participants got cocky, with Gov. Lujan Grisham claiming “We’re going to crush it in New Mexico.”
Former Interior Secretary Salazar called Ben Ray Luján, who is running in a tight election against popular former weatherman and Republican nominee Mark Ronchetti, “Senator Ben Ray Luján,” with Gov Lujan Grisham joining him.
Lujan Grisham said, “I’m gonna call you Senator Luján, too,” showing over-confidence in Luján’s election chances.
The cockiness spewed forth in the fundraising call may irk voters who are yet to decide who they are voting for in the General Election, especially since hundreds of thousands of New Mexicans are still casting their votes early, by absentee, or in-person on Election Day.
Previously, Ben Ray Luján mocked Latino Trump supporters, calling them “political pawns” in a racist tyrade.
So far 598,474 New Mexicans have already cast their ballots, with Democrats leading in absentee votes, while Republicans dominate Democrats in early votes in-person.
Gov. Lujan Grisham is scheduled to spearhead another fundraiser for Joe Biden, along with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and other far-left governors to speak about “clean energy,” giving credence to Joe Biden’s repeated comments that he will phase-out all oil and gas production.
Power the Future’s Larry Behrens said of the scheduled Thursday fundraiser that “Joe Biden told the world he wants to get rid of the oil industry and it’s abhorrent that our own Governor agrees.”
