DPNM Chairwoman Debra Haaland Comments on Vice Presidential Debate

New Mexico – DPNM Chairwoman Debra Haaland released the following statement after the vice presidential debate:

“There’s no other way to put it: Tim Kaine showed New Mexico that he and Hillary Clinton have the experience, the vision, and the plan to address our country’s challenges.

“Mike Pence, on the other hand, showed that he is just as dangerous and just as extreme as Trump.

“New Mexicans have a choice this election, and tonight’s vice presidential debate couldn’t have made that choice more clear. Our state knows what happens when Republicans get elected and push their extremist agenda – after all, we’re in a budget battle for our lives right now  –  so we simply cannot afford a Trump/Pence White House.

“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine share our New Mexico values, and I know New Mexicans will turn out to vote for them in November.”
