New Mexico – Today, the Democratic Party of New Mexico released the following statement after Republican Yvette Herrell announced she will be running for Congress in New Mexico’s second congressional district.
“Yvette Herrell works hand in hand with Steve Pearce and has shown that she would rather put the harmful Republican agenda ahead of the people of southern New Mexico. Not only did she refuse to step up and support education, she voted to keep Governor Martinez’s veto of all higher education in our state. We don’t need someone who doesn’t value education in Congress,” said Richard Ellenberg, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.
Yvette Herrell works with Congressman Steve Pearce on extreme positions that keep women from achieving equality. In addition, Herrell is the state chair of ALEC, a shadowy organization that sells prepackaged extremist bills aimed giving unfair advantages millionaires and billionaires.
