Conservative Republican Endorses Gary King for Governor

Conservative radio show host and self described conservative Republican George Lovato Jr. endorses Gary King for Governor.  While Lovato supported Martinez in the past he has been disappointed by her complete lack of concern about New Mexico’s small businesses.  King, in sharp contrast to the current governor, is offering a sound and much needed plan for the state.

Watch Lovato explain why he has turned away from Martinez and is supporting Gary King for Governor.

The Real Reason Voter Rolls are Purged

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Dianna Duran once more began her process of purging the voter rolls.  This action is being repeated by Republican officials around the country.  When asked the reason, the answer is always to reduce voter fraud.  A recent study casts doubt on that thinking when it sampled I BILLION votes and found only 31 instances of voter fraud (that’s 0.000000031 of the total votes).  Hardly a problem to the integrity of the vote.  So if voter fraud is not the reason, what is?  Voter suppression.  Remember back to August 2012 when Duran set about purging Diane Wood from the voter rolls?  Diane, the Voting Rights Director for Common Cause, had voted in every election since 1971.  Read the study that led to the conclusion that voter fraud IS NOT the reason behind the efforts to purge voter rolls.
