New Mexico families have the opportunity to elect politicians who advocate for the “kitchen table issues” that New Mexican Families face every day, such as rebuilding a strong economy with economic opportunity for all, a working public and private education system to educate our children to prepare them for the jobs in a post-COVID world, and enforcing law-and-order to ensure safe communities to raise the next generation.
Our current elected Democrat officials are focused on implementing far-left ideas such as the Green New Deal which would directly hurt New Mexico pocketbooks through the loss of high-paying oil and gas revenue. Education in New Mexico would suffer since, in 2019, 41% of New Mexico state tax revenue was from the oil and gas industry. In a state like New Mexico, which has significant poor and underserved, our priority should be to provide each New Mexican family with a high quality of life.
2020 is the opportunity for New Mexico families to kick out the career politicians, such as Democrat Rep. Deb Haaland (NM-1), who spent the months leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic jet-setting across the United States as Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign co-chair, knocking on doors in Iowa rather than doing her job working for New Mexicans in Washington, D.C. If you believe in strong, conservative representatives in Washington D.C. to advocate on behalf of New Mexico Families, 2020 is the year for New Mexico families to unite in support of Donald Trump, Mark Ronchetti, and Yvette Herrell who will put New Mexico families first.
President Donald Trump has provided the blueprint of “America First” principles which, before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns caused by Democrat governors including Michelle Lujan Grisham, yielded the greatest economy in the history of the United States, including the lowest Hispanic unemployment rate as a direct result of Trump’s “America First” policies.
Mark Ronchetti and Yvette Herrell both will put “New Mexico First” by protecting New Mexico’s Economy from extremely misguided government regulation, protect our great Law Enforcement, and give New Mexico strong representation in Washington D.C. in replacement of D.C. politicians Xochitl Torres Small and Ben Ray Luján. We cannot allow misguided ideologues to lead us astray from the principles and values which have gotten us this far.
If we elect Ben Ray Luján to the United States Senate, we can expect more of the same from the six-term NM CD-3 representative. Ben Ray will be entrenched in the U.S. Senate until retirement, following the exact same “Democrat playbook” of previous NM CD-3 Rep. Tom Udall, who was elected to U.S. Senate and is now only vacating the seat due to retirement. For far too long we have allowed our elected officials to focus on their careers on the dime of hard-working American families. 2020 is the year that we get our government back to work for the people of New Mexico.
