On Wednesday, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s campaign sent out a frantic-sounding email claiming MAGA (Make America Great Again) Republicans are coming for her while they spread “climate denialism.”
The email claimed, “We can’t let the GOP replace the country’s only woman of color to serve as Governor with a GOP radical who would take our state back.” It is unclear what her team defines as a “woman of color,” but it appears to be race-baiting.
It further went on to claim that Mark Ronchetti, the newly chosen GOP nominee for governor, is a “far-right extremist,” despite his stances being moderate, especially regarding “climate change,” which he has said he has been “on board” with “for over 20 years.”
Her team then went on to ask for campaign cash, writing, “Every MAGA supporter is about to flood Ronchetti’s campaign with donations, so we have to ask: Will you please contribute $5 before midnight to help us reach our emergency $15,000 goal and keep New Mexico blue?”
Lujan Grisham has a record of misuse of campaign funds, misuse of taxpayer funds, paying off a former staffer $150,000 over an alleged crotch grab, an attack on the state’s oil and gas industry, the killing of 40% of small businesses during her pandemic lockdown, a revolving door cabinet, among countless other scandals.
Lujan Grisham faces Republican Mark Ronchetti and Libertarian Karen Bedonie* in the General Election on November 8.
*There is a write-in candidate Ginger Grider, who is running against Bedonie. According to news reports by KAHL, it will take a few days for write-in ballots to be counted.
