Republican Party of New Mexico Releases Statement on Baseless Attack Against Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes

Albuquerque, NM – Today, the Republican Party of New Mexico released the following statement on the baseless, desperate attack by the Democrat Party of New Mexico against Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes:

“Rep. Maestas Barnes is an excellent legislator truly dedicated to serving her district and has been a champion for transparency,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Debbie Maestas. “It is not surprising in the least that the Democrat Party of New Mexico would try to deflect from their support of the unethical and secretive Hillary Clinton by launching this desperate attack on the day of Rep. Maestas Barnes’ 2016 Job Fair. Rep. Maestas Barnes has been completely forthcoming and transparent in updating her required financial disclosure statement. RPNM stands completely behind Rep. Maestas Barnes and DPNM should focus on addressing the issues facing our state instead of filing a frivolous and false complaint against a community-focused representative like Sarah Maestas Barnes.”
