As Kamala Harris visits Albuquerque Tuesday to support far-left pro-abortion Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s re-election efforts, Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Ronchetti’s campaign is bringing up her past tweets that say sexual abuse accusers must be heard.
Lujan Grisham paid a former staffer, James Hallinan, $150,000 in hush money and forced him to sign a non-disclosure agreement after he claimed she mocked his manhood after she poured water over and groped his crotch.
Harris, in previous tweets, claimed she supports “all survivors of sexual assault or abuse. We won’t let them be silenced or ignored. #BelieveSurvivors.” Yet she is campaigning for Lujan Grisham, who not only was accused but paid off money to alleged abuse victims.
Ronchetti’s campaign had a mobile billboard with Harris’ tweets drive around the event venue at Keller Hall on the University of New Mexico campus. The billboard also asked, “Kamala, #ItsOnUs to stop sexual assault, so why have you not called out MLG for committing sexual assault?”
The Ronchetti campaign wrote on Twitter, “Right now, @Michelle4NM is campaigning with VP Kamala Harris in Albuquerque. In the past, the VP has taken a strong stance against sexual assault. So, we sent a mobile billboard to their event to ask her if she still supports sexual assault victims.”
See what it looks like:
Ronchetti is currently polling ahead of Lujan Grisham, whose scandals are taking a toll on her re-election prospects. Instead of debating issues, she has pivoted almost exclusively to talking about abortion.
The in attendance for the event included far-left U.S. Sen. Ben Ray Luján, U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury (CD-3), state Sen. Leo Jaramillo (Rio Arriba), and lame-duck state Rep. Roger Montoya, also from Rio Arriba County — all Democrats.
