Republicans continue to push extreme, damaging, out-of-touch agenda
New Mexico Democrats are fired up and excited about our 2014 state house candidates. These outstanding women and men are teachers, labor leaders, firefighters, paramedics, veterans and small business owners. They don’t pretend to have all the answers but they do promise to offer common sense ideas and solutions to solve problems in New Mexico.
- Raising the minimum wage
- Accessing the permanent fund for early childhood education
- Creating good paying jobs so families can remain in New Mexico and build a future.
NM House Republicans?
Rep.Nora Espinoza wants to keep Hispanic history books out of public schools. Why?
Rep. Tom Anderson obsesses about a non-binding 1992 United Nations resolution that suddenly, 22 years later is a “threat to homes (and the) property of our middle-class” in New Mexico.” Really?
Rep. Cathrynn Brown’s main accomplishment was to introduce a bill that charges a rape victim that ended her pregnancy with a 3rd degree felony for “tampering with evidence.” 3rd degree felonies carry a sentence of up to three years in prison. Then she tried to explain it was all a mistake. She is the mistake.
Rep. Paul Pacheco voted against increasing the minimum wage, against an expansion in education funding and against any other issue that his constituents support. Pathetic.
Why would anyone vote for these Republicans currently serving in the state legislature?
Fact is: they won’t. New Mexico voters, given the choice and provided the information, will consistently support and vote for Democratic candidates because of our common sense ideas and vision for the future.
New Mexicans believe in diversity, tolerance and compassion. That’s what Democrats believe too.
This is Governor Martinez and NM House Republicans Vision for New Mexico:
- 50th in nation for well being of children
- zero jobs created—state lost almost 6000 jobs within last year
- 1st in nation for child hunger; 2nd for adults
Unfortunately, this is the reality.
New Mexico Democrats, led by Senator Tom Udall, Gary King and NM House Democrats, will help create jobs, maintain affordable health care and ensure our kids have a world class education.
If you share these views and want to build a better future for New Mexico and your kids, vote Democratic, from the bottom to the top on November 4th.
With our Democratic candidates tied in the polls with the GOP, we need your help. CONTRIBUTE NOW.
Democrats are building a better future.
