Albuquerque, N.M. – Today, the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) slammed the New Mexico GOP on its announcement of support for Donald Trump. Shortly after Donald Trump was named the winner of the Indiana Republican Primary, Ted Cruz left the race and the New Mexico GOP announced its they will be backing Trump.
“The New Mexico GOP is totally off base. Their endorsement of Donald Trump means that Republican candidates in the state will be following Trump’s lead. Trump is all wrong for New Mexico–he perpetuates racism, holds harmful attitudes toward women, and has no idea how he will run our country. Republican candidates in our state will have to be transparent and answer tough questions on whether they stand with Trump and his racist rhetoric and reckless policy ideas,” said Debra Haaland Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.
