DPNM Chairwoman Debra Haaland Statement on Second Presidential Debate

New Mexico – Democratic Party of New Mexico Chairwoman Debra Haaland released the following statement following the second presidential debate:

“Yet again, Hillary Clinton delivered a positive vision for our country, while Donald Trump showed us that he is still the man who degrades women, disrespects our Hispanic communities, unfairly targets Muslim Americans, and refuses to pay his fair share of taxes.

“There is no ‘other’ Donald Trump – this is who he is – and that’s why it’s so shameful that many Republicans like Steve Pearce and Nora Espinoza still refuse to un-endorse him. New Mexicans deserve better.

“Hillary Clinton addressed the issues at stake in this election and has real plans and ideas to improve the lives of millions of American families. Hillary Clinton has a record of delivering results for the American people, and during tonight’s debate she exemplified the Democratic values of inclusiveness and respect.

“New Mexico has a choice this election, and I am confident voters in our state will support Hillary Clinton.”
