The 2024 Republican State Pre-Primary Convention & State Central Committee Meeting—Register HERE.



Albuquerque, December 14—The Republican Party of New Mexico is dismayed that Gov. Lujan Grisham has extended her search for a Bernalillo County District Attorney, a move that could mean no lead prosecutor will be in place for weeks if not months.

Lujan Grisham wants to seek more candidates which will mean a DA will not be named until at least January.  The deadline for applicants was extended to December 23rd

This is particularly disturbing–not only because there are at least ten qualified candidates who have submitted names to replace outgoing Raul Torrez—but skyrocketing crime continues in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. Albuquerque has already shattered its one-year homicide record in 2022 with 115.

In an article written December 11th about the upcoming Gun Safety Bills the Governors’ spokeswoman was quoted as saying “The Governor is clear: New Mexicans ‘are beyond sick and tired of crime, and gun violence continues to be a nationwide scourge that warrants immediate and outcomes-focused attention.”

So why is the Governor waiting til the coming year to appoint a District Attorney to replace Raul Torrez?  The Governor needs to appoint someone now who can work with outgoing Raul Torrez in transition so there is no delay with pending criminal cases.   Leticia Munoz, 2nd Vice Chair of the RPNM commented,  “This delay shows that crime is not a priority for Lujan Grisham. This appointment is critical.   Her comment about New Mexicans sick and tired of the crime was only for the purpose of the gun bill package she is preparing for in the upcoming legislation.  It clearly doesn’t relate to the appointment of the DA in Bernalillo County.” 

Instead of focusing on the new DA appointment since Election Day, Lujan Grisham has been traveling around the world, trying to build up her personal network for a future job.  If shes concerned about New Mexicans safety, she must get a qualified DA in Bernalillo County—now.

  • Get tough on crime says:

    If the GOP cared about crime in America then would speak out against J6.

    If you want to see real Americans fight crime and the enemies of the people watch the final congressional hearing on J6 coming soon.

    It’s so funny hearing RPNM complain about Democrats not being tough on crime while the whole GOP cannot acknowledge the crime of the century. January 6th happened and it wasn’t a tour, protest, or riot, it was a coordinated coup with as many as 30 congress members involved. This cannot be ignored, the enemies of America must be brought to justice.

    Get tough on treason and traitors and then we can move on to bringing justice to murders, rapist, thieves.

      The meeting was yesterday, criminal referrals were made, and the evidence soon will be released. Mr. Pearce’s and Ms. Skaggs’ duty as citizens and leaders of NM GOP is to break their silence and tell us what they think.

      The GOP in NM can’t see out of the hole it’s in until they do.

  • JH Cole says:

    Here’s a clue for the slow learners who run this space: The GOP took a licking in November because moderates, centrists and even many Republicans are turned off by your constant whining about Democratic office holders. What they want is for you to call out Trump team’s major crimes against democracy and national security.

    The NM GOP will stay irrelevant until you stop attacking everyone who beat you up in the last election and come up with reasons to vote for you.

  • History in the Making says:

    December 19th 1pm EST is the final public hearing of the House of Representatives January 6th Committee.

    Tune in, to watch history in the making.

    There will be criminal referrals made to the Department of Justice.

    Never before in the history of the United States of America has a President attempted to retain power after loosing an election.

    J6 and the coup against democracy and the Constitution is a stain upon this great country.

    The silence from the RPNM is shameful.

    If we want to avoid a civil war the perpetrators of these crimes must be held accountable.

    New Mexico’s highest profile traitor, Coupy Griffin of Ortero County, has been barred from ever holding office because of his inserection on J6 and the 14th Amendment.

    Applying the 14th to Trump, all co-conspirators in congress and state government and anyone who has spread the big lie that J6 was justified is the only way forward.

    New Mexico’s fake electors, Steve Peearce, and John Eastman must be brought to justice.

    The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution Section 3 :

    Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
