Election results: MLG gets another term, GOP makes slight gains in state House

On Tuesday, New Mexico Republicans suffered losses in the 2022 midterm election, which was mired by obsessive talk about abortion by Democrats while key issues such as crime and inflation were swept under the rug by leftists. 

In the governor’s race, Democrat scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham won reelection against Republican Mark Ronchetti. Unofficial results as of 2:30 a.m. Wednesday showed Lujan Grisham with 52 percent of the vote, Ronchetti with 46 percent, while Libertarian Karen Bedonie garnered two percent. Ronchetti conceded to Lujan Grisham, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

In the state House, Republicans did not succeed in most attempts at knocking off Democrat incumbents, although Jenifer Jones of Deming is leading incumbent Democrat state Rep. Candie Sweetser of Deming by 49 votes, potentially triggering an automatic recount. 

Another seat the GOP flipped appears to be Albuquerque-based House District 68, currently held by retiring Democrat Rep. Karen Bash. Republican Robert Moss leads Democrat Charlotte Little by 12 votes. In the Sandoval County-based 23rd District, Republican Alan Martinez won over Democrat Ramon Montano, flipping the seat currently held by retiring Democrat Rep. Daymon Ely to the Republican column.

One Republican incumbent lost reelection, Rep. Jane Powdrell-Culbert of Corrales, who was defeated by Democrat Kathleen Cates. That leaves Republicans with 26 seats in the 70-member chamber if the results hold. This is a slight gain from the current 24 seats held in the state House. 

The losses in the state legislature came after Democrats’ aggressive partisan gerrymandering to benefit far-left Democrats. 

Both Democrat U.S. Reps. Melanie Stansbury of the First District and Teresa Leger Fernandez of the Third District easily won reelection, while Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell’s seat in the Second District remains too close to call. 

Republican Alexis Martinez Johnson trailed Leger Fernandez 42 percent to 58 percent. Republican Michelle Garcia Holmes trailed Stansbury 44 percent to 56 percent.

All statewide races for secretary of state, state treasurer, state land commissioner, attorney general, and state auditor swung toward Democrats, while all Democrat Court of Appeals and Supreme Court judges won their seats, keeping a 5-0 Democrat majority on the state’s highest court. 

All constitutional amendments and bond issues passed overwhelmingly, one of which will rob billions from the state’s Permanent Fund for socialist “free” daycare programs. 

Other high-profile races, such as Bernalillo County’s sheriff race, where billionaire Michael Bloomberg dunked large sums of cash into to help the Democrat, John Allen, swing in his favor also.

  1. I really hoped my vote would make a difference. Looks like NM only cares about killing babies and protecting sex perverts. New Mexico is a lost state .

    1. What is it that all these young women do not know
      or do not care to KNOW that there are a lot of preventative
      medications available if they want to SCREW AROUND.

  2. Well America was good while it lasted. “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
    – Marcus Tullius Cicero

    1. Amen. Our young people will never taste the freedoms we have known. They will never miss the freedom they never earned. That makes them slaves to those they depend on for all their wants instead of their needs.

      Congratulations John, as you enter the lions den, stand tall and do not become frail and weak, you can at least be a thorn in their side.

  3. Thank you Pinion Post. I appreciate your publication and thanks to all the candidates who worked so hard in the pursuit of justice and to uphold constitutional values. Enlightened New Mexico are in mourning. This is a sad day in New Mexico indeed.

  4. Charlie is so right with his observation that New Mexico is a lost state. I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am with voters who choose party over people.

  5. If the results of this election are truly untampered then New Mexican’s are gluttons for punishment. Those that voted the same corrupt polticians into office can no longer think for themselves or use good judgement for their well being. I pray for the state and it’s people.

  6. I had hoped that millions of Americans casting their votes would be enough to overcome the soros/bloomberg cash and the dominion machine fraud.
    But our masters will never give up the power they have stolen. They control the machines, they own the media and they hold the power of the state to crush any resistance.


  7. I share everyone’s frustration. I’m afraid our beautiful state is lost.
    Thank you for the quote from Cicero. Here’s one from Ayn Rand:
    When you see that in order to produce you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing…when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed.

  8. Bottom of the list in anything good. Top of the list in everything bad. The ignorant useful idiots love abortion and poverty and crime. NM is a dump. Congratulations, morons.

  9. A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. – author unknown

    Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide. – John Adams, Letter,
    April 15, 1814

  10. Total LACK of wisdom on the part of many New Mexicans!!! Of course, they received their “education” in NM public schools so why are we surprised??!! Now I have a much better understanding why the US Congress was so reticent in accepting NM as a state so many years ago. The state appears cursed!

  11. NM ,has gone to hell in a hand basket ,I have seen the destruction of this once great place to live since I moved here in 1988 .The worst is on the way be prepared !!!!!!

  12. This state accepts failure as the norm. More than half the population of the state is on some form of government assistance. Those people aren’t going to vote to limit their benefits. The majority of the state just votes for the ‘D’ next to the name. Too many are apathetic. They don’t vote to improve the state because they accept failure. Those in power do it by design because a poor and ignorant population is easier to control and manipulate. More than half the population who voted are celebrating the states continued failure and those that didn’t vote don’t care in the first place.

  13. Well Charlie Brown (voters) went to kick the football again and Lucy (communists) once again moved it. Are we really that gullible to believe that a state in total decline and last in meaningful quality of life issues are concerned only with murdering children in the womb? Voters apparently weren’t concerned with widespread corruption, crime, homelessness, despair and extreme poverty but the commies and their corrupt media tell us the only meaningful issue is abortion. Joseph Stalin said “ voters don’t matter , it’s who counts the votes that matter “ think about that next time you go to kick the football.

    1. …which is why I have made it my mission to slam Maggie Oliver every opportunity I get. Until she is thrown out, voted out or arrested out of office, nothing here will change. Audrey Trujillo ran a dignified, honorable race. Was this election fair? I seriously doubt it. I cannot believe that many people are that stupid. I also saw Clement’s preliminary results this morning and….well, well, well…..we had the same kinds of spiky patterns as the last two elections.

      CONGRATULATIONS on your win, John! You are a voice in the desert that we are proud to have. Give the Swamp hell!

    1. Fraud vitiates fraud no term limits. Two party system like the CORPARATIONS STATE OF NEW MEXICO , USA INC bankrupted currently renewed WHITEHOUSE INC run by BIDEN and those behind curtain . The republic had been overthrown by these traitors ( Stinkin Lincoln ) back in the 1860’s.
      Treaties broken, land stolen, 14th amend. never lawfully ratified, so much Fraud.

      I’m amazed so many showed up to participate when we all now what they did last election. Voters don’t decide elections ELECTORS due. Been that way since early 1900’s. We the people have been lied to indoctrinator with there lies.
      Its all fraud treason by CORPARTIONS acting as color of government, law.

  14. ese results point out the sad truth: With only 51% of voters going to the polls, if Republicans and Independents, who make up a majority of voters in the state had just gone out in numbers (75%) like they could have, the electorate could have been 2/3rds made up of opponents of the regime and won majorities throughout the state. Instead, we had races in many districts where Republicans won unopposed, but whereever Democrats ran they got out their voter base, while Republicans didn’t.

    1. They own almost everything. This is place of exception. I sent out some texts on Monday to contacts & friends of memes – quotes – strong opinions caveats. My cell service provider decided to delete my phone services. I was told no or Id be permently banned ( Straight Talk – prepaid ) from walmart is my cell type. Recently bought by Verizon! Rigged system, Voter fraud , just like the USA INC – FBI (foreign own private corporation never chartered by congress!) BLM – FEMA – STATEOFNEWMEXICO and on and on brother

    1. Democrats/leftists will do what they always do – they will blame any/everyone else because they have no ability/character to take responsibility for what they do.

  15. it may finally New Mexico as opposed to spending 4 more years with an idiot as Governor and turning into California Wyoming and South Dakota are looking right now.

  16. Congratulations John and Amy. At least we have these two that will fight for us. I can’t say anything nice about the Democrats so I won’t say anything at all.

  17. it may finally be time to leave the third world state of New Mexico as opposed to spending 4 more years with an idiot as Governor and turning into California Wyoming and South Dakota are looking right no

  18. 2022 Governor Race:
