DPNM Statement on State of the Union 

New Mexico – Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Richard Ellenberg released the following statement after President Trump delivered his State of the Union Address:

“Tonight, President Trump laid out a vision for the country that was more of the same recklessness we’ve seen during his first year in office. From his disastrous attempts to repeal health care for hundreds of thousands of New Mexicans to his tax scam that will ultimately cost everyday New Mexicans hundreds extra on their taxes, his administration has failed New Mexicans.

“In November we have an opportunity to change course and elect members of Congress who will hold President Trump accountable for his reckless policies driven by the Republican agenda that has already failed our state under Governor Martinez.

“Democrats will continue to work on issues that benefit all New Mexicans, including growing our new energy economy, investing in education and job trading, and ensuring all families have the opportunity to get ahead.”
