‘Political newbie’: MLG gets desperate as Ronchetti takes polling lead

On Saturday, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s team sent out a panicked email ruthlessly bashing Republican gubernatorial nominee Mark Ronchetti with personal attacks and falsehoods.

The campaign claims Ronchetti, who is a political moderate, is a “far-right extremist who wants to bring MAGA values to New Mexico,” despite Ronchetti distancing himself from President Donald Trump.

Her team then went on to claim his policy positions are radical, brandishing him as “wishy-washy on climate science” and as someone who “wants to stall environmental action.” 

The Lujan Grisham campaign then hit him with a personal attack that also doubles as an attack on political outsiders running for office, writing, “And, he’s a political newbie with no public service experience – just like Donald Trump.”

She did not, however, lob this attack on people like U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), or other politicians in her own party who never held elected office before running.

“We need your help to show the GOP that New Mexico is NOT up for grabs,” the campaign wrote, referencing a KOB 4 poll showing Ronchetti trailing Lujan Grisham by a mere four points.

But most startling, this week, the Ronchetti campaign released an internal poll claiming it was leading the embattled governor by one point with 46% to Lujan Grisham’s 45%. According to the numbers released, the poll has a margin of error of four percentage points. 

Lujan Grisham also began attacking Ronchetti on television, using a Democrat ex-police chief to claim the GOP nominee, who is a former television weatherman, doesn’t know how to fight crime. Crime rates have hit their highest peaks in New Mexico under Lujan Grisham, especially in Democrat-run Albuquerque, where homicides have hit historic highs.

Libertarian gubernatorial nominee Karen Bedonie, a former Republican, is also in contention for the governorship.

    1. All a big show as whoever is installed will be a puppet of the controllers. Most likely MLG with the SOS will be reinstalled.

  1. Politics as usual. There is no choice anymore and I refuse to vote for the lesser of two undesirables. I like to sleep at night with a clean conscience.

  2. If they were so afraid to have the primary election scrutinized ( a look by Otero Commissioners at the Dominion machines, as requested) and MLG was on the ballot unopposed, there must have been GOP candidates they wanted elected. Makes you wonder.

  3. MLG is forcing Roncheeto to continue to distance himself from President Trump and MAGA. Smart. When he does, because he has no choice, some who might otherwise have voted for him won’t. The NM GOP could not be more lame or shortsighted. She won’t have to cheat that much to win.

  4. I don’t care if it’s Ronchetti or Sam I am – Moochie Loserjan-Gruesom needs removed from the Governors seat and her corruption exposed so she can NEVER acquire another Gov’t position! It’s time the Loserjan regime be shut down to include little Benny-boy in Washington!

  5. I’ve done some research….The “Wuhan” Lujan family in New Mexico is just as corrupt as the D’Alessandro family in Maryland (where I am originally from). The D’Alessandro family spawned Nancy Pelosi! Scandal follows the Democrats where ever they go. Get all of them out of office.
    We should be able to vote “NONE OF THE ABOVE” or “NO CONFIDENCE”.
    If one of these choices succeeds then any candidate who was running would not be permitted to run again.
    VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT!
