Republican Party of New Mexico Announces New Political Director

Albuquerque, NM – Today, the Republican Party of New Mexico is excited to announce that RPNM Field Organizer Josh Spann has been named Political Director. Spann is taking over for former Political Director Todd Johnson, who has moved up to a new role within the Party and will be heading up victory efforts in New Mexico.

As Political Director, Josh Spann will maintain the party’s relationship with our county chairs, candidates, and elected officials across the state, as well as oversee the party’s grassroots engagement efforts and field organization. Spann has been working as a member of the RPNM field team for months, and previously served seven years in the United States Air Force, including five in a supervisory position.

“I’m thrilled to serve as Political Director and continue the progress we’ve made over the last few years and secure some wins in November,” said Spann. “Our state deserves new leadership in the Senate and a Republican majority in the House so we can affect the change we need in New Mexico.”

Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Debbie Maestas is proud of the work Spann has done thus far and looks forward to his further contributions toward RPNM’s overall success.

“I have gotten to know Josh well throughout his time working for RPNM and trust he will devote the time and energy necessary for our candidates and Party to be successful this year and in the years to come,” said Maestas. “Todd has also served our party extremely well during his tenure as Political Director, and I am confident he has the experience needed to move to another level and continue to help our GOP efforts overall.”
