National Journal Names New Mexico Top State to Flip Governor Seat in 2018

New Mexico – Last night, National Journal named New Mexico as the top state to flip in 2018 citing eight years of Governor Susana Martinez and Democrats’ success in federal races.

“It’s clear that Governor Martinez’s Republican policies have put the state in a downward spiral, and New Mexicans can feel it. But we have an opportunity to change our state’s trajectory by electing a Democrat in 2018, so our families can start to feel the economic recovery,” said Richard Ellenberg, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.

Currently, Republican Steve Pearce is running on the same economic agenda that failed to provide a stable economic footing for New Mexico families. Under the current Republican policies, New Mexico has seen damaging budget deficits, a drop in credit rating, and the highest unemployment in the country.
