Chairman Pearce issued the following statement regarding his re-election:

“This was a spirited campaign, and I thank the grassroots Republican leaders from across New Mexico for trusting me to lead for another term as RPNM chairman. An overwhelming number of these leaders agree that our data-driven approach to identifying and turning out conservative leaning voters is working, proven by the fact that Republican candidates are getting closer and closer to defeating the Democrats in competitive races.

“Turning New Mexico red is a marathon, not a sprint, and as we look toward 2024, I am excited about helping our future Republican nominees be successful in their campaigns.”

  • Constitutional Conservative says:

    Where does RPNM stand on terminating the Constitution?


    A man cannot serve two masters.

  • JH Cole says:

    This is sad news. During Mr. Pearce’s term the GOP’s relevance has shrunk and he has yet to admit any mistakes or propose new strategies. He has not offered a way to lead the Party forward without Trump the Loser or to reeducate his MAGA base.

    Someone commented in a local paper that active Republicans probably would vote for Mr. Pearce even if he was dead, and that could be true. With him at the helm the party soon might be dead.

    • Hang him up, hang him up! says:

      Pierce should be tride for his crimes against the American people like the fake electors scheme he was involved in and hung until dead.

      Save Mike Pence, hang Steve and the Trump traitors.

  • Mike C says:

    And you will continue too not be successful with teachings of dear leader 45. I am tired of the RPNM parroting the message of that individual, campaign on something other than victimhood. Maybe have some ideas on how to improve education and the economy, other than drill baby drill.

    • Just say No says:

      Mike, you are soot on. The GOP hasn’t had a policy game since Ronald Reagan.

      They are just the party of NO. Clogging up Congress for 30 years because they would hate to loose face if the lives of Americans were improved through.

      They are 100% defined by what they are against because they are for nothing.

  • seldomseensmith says:

    Steve Pearce is a trumpet sucking conspiracy theorist

  • Claire Kerven says:

    Tom Renz, lawyer, just reported that Missouri is trying to pass a bill that would require that the public be informed if vaccines, meds, foods
    might/would change the DNA in humans. If it is passed in MO. it should really apply to all American. But why not pass such a bill in New Mexico?

    Why can’t TorC get any fed. Infrastructure for its water system ??

  • Dennis P. Marks says:

    Spoke on Alamogordo radio,years ago with Steve Pierce about the Lincoln NF. mismanagement.
