DPNM Looks Ahead to the 2024 Statewide Campaign

The Democratic Party of New Mexico released the following statement on New Mexico’s primary election:

“Once again, Democrats are fielding a strong slate of candidates in the general election with strong records of delivering for New Mexicans. While Republicans are beholden to the national MAGA agenda and too afraid to denounce Trump, Democrats work tirelessly to make our state the best it can be for all New Mexicans. 

“If the abysmal Republican voter turnout in the primary was any indication, it is obvious that Steve Pearce’s party is once again incapable of exciting voters by fielding candidates too extreme for our state. Why would Republicans be excited to vote for candidates like Trump, No-Answer Nella Domenici, and Yvette Herrell? Republican candidates in New Mexico fold to the national MAGA agenda and fail to speak to the concerns of New Mexicans. 

“After being convicted of 34 felonies by a jury of his peers, the only way to keep Donald Trump out of the White House is at the ballot box, and New Mexico Democrats will once again do our part to make that happen. Trump already lost New Mexico by 8% in 2016 and 11% in 2020. 

“We’ve seen what happens when Republicans are in control and we can’t allow that to happen in New Mexico. With the united strength of our Party and candidates, we’re ready to take on radical MAGA Republicans like Trump, Nella Domenici, and Yvette Herrell who are all too extreme for our state.

“Despite the lackluster field of Republican candidates, the Democratic Party of New Mexico is not taking a single vote for granted. Democrats are already campaigning across the state for President Biden and are with our entire ticket every step of the way, from the White House to the Roundhouse.”
