Scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham begged donors for more campaign cash running up to the end of September, claiming “extremist Republicans” were going to “suppress voting rights, end reproductive freedom, and refuse to act on climate change.” The campaign claimed the Governor could not afford to fall short on fundraising by the end of the month — despite Lujan Grisham having a massive war chest for her reelection campaign that she had begun building the day she took office.
In one ploy, she tried to label Republicans as “scary,” erroneously claiming the January 6th incursion of the U.S. Capitol was an action of the Republican Party and that pro-life laws in Texas would somehow hurt New Mexico.
She wrote, “From inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol to ending access to reproductive health care in Texas, the GOP is at its most extreme right now – and they’re doing everything they can to flip New Mexico red. I won’t lie to you, friend: it’s a scary moment for our shared future.” She went on to ask, “Will you rush $15 right now to help us defend New Mexico from far-right extremists?”
In one hilarious line in the email, Lujan Grisham wrote, “That’s why I desperately need your help: To protect New Mexico from the party of anti-masking and voter suppression, I need to reach our emergency $20,000 filing deadline goal before Oct. 4 at midnight. The stakes have never been higher, so I need everyone reading this email to contribute.”
But now, after the supposed September deadline, Lujan Grisham’s campaign has gotten even more desperate, sending emails begging for donations, with emails titled “still short” claiming that if the scandal-ridden Governor is not kept in 2022, “Republicans could erase this progress in an instant. To protect our state from the GOP, I need you to help me meet this goal right now.”
Another email from October 3 claims if the MLG campaign does not “meet every single goal, our state could fall straight into the GOP’s hands.”
With seven Republican candidates to choose from to take out Lujan Grisham after the corrosive agenda the Governor has inflicted upon the state, it is no wonder she is so scared for her reelection. From locking down New Mexicans and killing at least 40% of small businesses to ramming through extremist abortion up-to-birth and infanticide bills, Lujan Grisham has made many enemies.
