Far-left NM House Speaker Brian Egolf will retire

On Thursday, far-left Speaker of the House Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe) announced his departure from the chamber following his current term, creating an opportunity for the lawmaker to be replaced by a much more moderate voice.

The controversial lawmaker has ruled the speakership with an iron fist, including cutting off debate in the chamber, locking doors to force quorums, and ramming through legislation while ignoring parliamentary procedure.

He helped champion extremist legislation, such as 2021’s H.B. 4, which stripped qualified immunity rights from local governments and law enforcement officers — opening the door for costly lawsuits that benefit civil rights attorneys, of which he is one.

House Minority Whip Rod Montoya, (R-Farmington) said Egolf pushed a “Santa Fe-centric” agenda. “The prospect of a new speaker is an opportunity for all New Mexicans to benefit,” he said.

  1. Glad to see him go

    He is an evil man. He made his money hurting New Mexico. There has to be a bigger reason he is leaving. Democraps are riddled with scandals. Skeletons are in all their closets.

  2. Good riddance to bad rubbish Egolf. Hope to say the same to the governor and the fools from my neck of the woods:
    P. Campos (D) (sponsor of SB 202, Pay raise for governor, AG, etc.) and A. Castellano (D) voted for increase in gas prices.
    If you’re from northeastern NM stop voting for people who are taking away freedoms and keeping you and your kids poor. These people have contempt for you.
