Democrat Soros-backed Ivy Leaguer Raúl Torrez running for NM attorney general

On Monday, George Soros-backed District Attorney Raúl Torres announced that he would be running for New Mexico attorney general, setting up a challenge between current state auditor Brian Colón and the Albuquerque-area district attorney.

“I think New Mexicans want bold leadership and tested leadership inside the AG’s Office,” he said in an interview with the Albuquerque Journal Monday. “I think they want someone who isn’t afraid to take on some of the toughest challenges we’ve got in the state.”

“Fundamentally, I believe we don’t have a system right now that provides adequate protections for the general public,” he said. Torrez has degrees from Harvard, Stanford, and the London School of Economics.

Hedge fund billionaire George Soros, who has funded extreme projects such as Black Lives Matter and other dark money groups backing socialist initiatives, donated $107,000 to a political action committee, “New Mexico Safety & Justice” that helped Raúl Torrez win the Democrat primary for district attorney in 2016.

According to the Journal’s report, State Sen. Jacob Candelaria, D-Albuquerque, said he is also weighing a campaign for attorney general. 

Candelaria has a long past of unhinged far-left comments, which would likely not bode well for him in a matchup between a statewide elected official (Colón) and billionaire George Soros’ hand-selected candidate (Torrez). 

The race for attorney general is wide open, as Hector Balderas is term-limited, and he declined to run for the U.S. Senate in 2020 against his fellow Democrat Ben Ray Luján, who now has filled that position.
