The Republican Party of New Mexico congratulates all its Primary winners and now sets its sights to complete its mission: to re-elect President Trump, win the Roundhouse, take the U.S. Senate and Congressional seats and claim the New Mexico Supreme Court. RPNM and its nominees will pull together and charge into the fall with a strong, diverse slate of candidates who will change the course of New Mexico political history. New Mexico will soon become red.
With a strong Republican voter turnout, the Party is energized and ready to put a stop to the progressive agenda in the Roundhouse and in New Mexico’s Congressional delegation.
In the U.S. Senate Race, Mark Ronchetti defeated Elisa Martinez and Gavin Clarkson.
In the 1st Congressional District race, Michelle Garcia Holmes took the nomination, beating Jared Vander Dussen and Brett Kokinadis.
In the 2nd Congressional District race, Yvette Herrell won the nomination, defeating Claire Chase and Chris Mathys.
The 3rd Congressional District race is too close to call, and votes should be counted later today. RPNM wants to congratulate the three candidates for running a strong race.
In the General Election this fall, RPNM will have legislative candidates in a record 101 races—41 in the Senate and 60 in the House. That demonstrates the excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the Party, and the importance to make gains in the legislature. It’s time for change. It’s time for progress. It’s time for a new New Mexico.
“These nominees will reclaim the spirit of New Mexico. Republicans have a strong message and a bold vision for our state,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce. “Our slate of nominees–from the top of the ticket to the bottom–is diverse, driven and on a mission to win this November. They believe in traditional New Mexico values, fiscal responsibility, jobs and sensible government. The day of Democrat dominance in New Mexico will soon be over.”
President Trump won the New Mexico Primary, and Republicans are also ready to deliver the state’s 5 electoral votes to him this fall.
