Democrat Joseph Cervantes Announces his Candidacy for Governor, Adding to the Growing List of Democrats

Albuquerque, NM – Yesterday, Democrat State Senator Joseph Cervantes announced his campaign for the New Mexico governor’s seat.At the same time, Senator Cervantes’ launched his gubernatorial campaign by denouncing the idea that New Mexico needs to attract new companies to our state, adding that luring out-of-state jobs have been too much of a priority for legislators trying to bring jobs to New Mexican residents.

Joseph Cervantes has kicked off his candidacy by announcing that he does not see the need to bring jobs and economic opportunity to this state,” said Ryan Cangiolosi, Chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico. “Cervantes doesn’t seem to understand that our next governor should have a plan to put more people to work.”

Cervantes’ also enters the race as a direct challenge to Michelle Lujan Grisham, as he becomes the 3rd Democrat to enter the 2018 governors’ race against her.

“Senator Cervantes is the third Democrat to challenge politician Michelle Lujan Grisham, and who knows, there will probably be more to step forward against her failed record of carrying water for Nancy Pelosi and her extreme agenda,” Cangiolosi stated. “Cervantes and many Democrats see Michelle Lujan Grisham as an inferior candidate who has no real solutions for the people of New Mexico.”
