Ane Romero More Concerned About Fundraising than Issues Facing Our State

Albuquerque, NM – Last week, Democrat Candidate for State Representative Ane Romero released a fundraising email in which she complained about the timing of the special session and the corresponding ban on fundraising, meant to prevent corrupt behavior while the legislators are in session.

“Ane Romero thinks that the ability to raise money for her campaign is more important than a special session to address the budget crisis,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “Things may have been different for Romero during her long career in Washington DC, but in New Mexico finding a solution to our budget crisis transcends politics.”

Prioritizing her own campaign fundraising over a special session to address the budget crisis is not the first time that Romero has revealed her lack of interest in solutions for the New Mexican economy. At a recent candidate forum, Romero could not articulate a clear position on Right to Work legislation, and claimed additional spending would be the answer to the budget crunch facing our state today.

“Romero thinks that spending more money is the answer to our economic problems,” said Keene. “Romero is unfamiliar with the state of the New Mexican economy and unprepared to represent the economic interests of New Mexicans. Washington DC solutions will not bring the growth and prosperity New Mexico needs.”
