New Mexico – After condemning Donald Trump’s vulgar comments about women, the Democratic Party of New Mexico called on the New Mexico GOP and Republicans across the state to denounce the Republican nominee.
“Yesterday’s audio tape release is just another instance in a pattern of offensive behavior from Donald Trump, and New Mexico Republicans have played into his hand throughout his dangerous campaign,” said Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico. “The New Mexico GOP endorsed Donald Trump from the very beginning. Governor Martinez shied away from denouncing Trump when he said offensive things about our Hispanic communities. Steve Pearce defended Trump when he affronted our Gold Star families. And Nora Espinoza stomped for Trump when Mike Pence came to New Mexico. The real question is: do they still defend Donald Trump after yesterday’s horrific comments?”
