Albuquerque, N.M. – Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico released the following statement after Bernie Sanders announced his support for Hillary Clinton today:
“Democrats know that we are stronger together, and today’s announcement is a culmination of hard work from both of our candidates and Democrats across the country. Working together, both campaigns created the most progressive platform in Democratic Party history that addresses the issues that really matter to New Mexicans–job creation, affordable education, fair and livable wages, paid family leave, and creating an economy that works for everyone.
“Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will be on the campaign trail fighting to challenge Donald Trump and Republicans. The choice in this election is clear. When we come together, we will keep Donald Trump from tearing us apart with his divisive rhetoric and dangerous ideas, and ensure sure all Americans have a chance to succeed, not just those at the top.”
