2012 Defeated GOP Nominee Mitt Romney in ABQ Thursday—Governor Martinez Needs More Money

Disgruntled GOP candidates Weh and Conrad James will join Governor at ‘meet and greet’ staged event

2012 defeated GOP nominee Mitt Romney jets into Albuquerque tomorrow to help Governor Martinez raise even more money for her next political office. Like Mitt Romney, Governor Martinez continues to show her contempt for poor and middle class New Mexicans by failing to create jobs, failing to solve the education crisis she promised to fix and now using Mr. Romney to solicit contributors at $2600+ per couple.

More money, more tax breaks for the rich and powerful and zero jobs for New Mexicans–that’s priority one for this Governor and New Mexico state Republicans.

Mitt Romney: “All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”

Allen Weh: “No minimum wage below the age of 26. ….So what if they make $4 an hour? So what?…”

Conrad James: Former Rep. James follows the standard GOP playbook that pushes working class men and women under a bus while always protecting the privileged few. James supports a plan that would make working New Mexico families pay more for gas and groceries while cutting taxes on the wealthy. Then he votes against protecting classroom spending, resulting in local districts increasing class sizes and a loss of 3,400 local education jobs across the state.

Meanwhile, today in 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

Mitt Romney, Allen Weh and Conrad James. No plan, vision or idea to help working men and women and no interest or intention to do so.
