New Mexico – At a press conference Thursday, Democratic Party of New Mexico Chairwoman Debra Haaland called on New Mexico Secretary of State Brad Winter to defend the integrity of New Mexico’s elections against Donald Trump and Nora Espinoza’s reckless claims questioning the legitimacy of election results. Today, the Chairwoman renewed her call with the following statement:
“New Mexico’s Secretary of State Brad Winter has a responsibility to ensure New Mexicans have trust in our elections. Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Nora Espinoza have all undermined the integrity of our elections and pose a threat to our democracy,” said Debra Haaland, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of New Mexico.“New Mexicans must make sure we keep dangerous candidates like Donald Trump and Nora Espinoza out of office—neither of them are qualified for the positions they seek and they don’t deserve our votes.”
The Republican Party has made intimidation and fear the new Republican standard. Earlier this month, the Republican Party of New Mexico sent a malicious mailer to voters aggressively threatening them to go to the polls.
Nora Espinoza has run a campaign on fear making false claims about voter fraud and campaigning to make it more difficult for voters to cast their ballots.
