Letter to Station Manager

Ryan Cangiolosi | RPNM Chairman | 5150 San Francisco NE, Albuquerque NM 87109

July 16, 2018

Dear Station Manager:

According to a recent Associated Press report, a television ad from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham, titled “Capital,” makes verifiably false and misleading statements. In the ad, Lujan Grisham claims that overdoses decreased when she was New Mexico secretary of health, even though “statewide annual drug overdose deaths increased steadily” during her tenure. Michelle Lujan Grisham is not being honest with New Mexico voters about her record. Given your station’s responsibility to protect the public from deceptive advertising, I urge you to immediately stop running Lujan Grisham’s ad. This letter serves as notice to your station that Lujan Grisham’s advertisement contains demonstrably false and misleading content and should immediately be pulled from airing on your channel.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this request.

Sincerely, Ryan Cangiolosi New Mexico GOP State Chairman
