Another Major Endorsement: Steve Pearce’s New Mexico Gov Campaign Continues To Receive Bipartisan Support

Prominent Democrats continue to abandon the Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham to support Republican Steve Pearce’s campaign.

The RGA reports:

In the New Mexico governor’s race, prominent Democrats continue to abandon the Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham to support Republican Steve Pearce’s campaign.

Earlier this month, Governor Jerry Apodaca – the former Democratic governor of New Mexico and a prominent Hispanic leader – crossed party lines to endorse Pearce.

Now, the Democrat Mayor of Grants, Martin Hicks, is also backing Pearce’s campaign, praising him as “a leader who will work with all New Mexicans to get our state back on track,” while attacking Lujan Grisham as someone who “will not.”

The growing bipartisan support around Pearce’s candidacy proves that he has a unifying message and that he’s the only candidate in the race who can work across party lines.

KRQG Public Media reports:

“Democratic Mayor of Grants Martin Hicks today endorsed Steve Pearce for Governor. Mayor Hicks joins a growing list of prominent Democrats to endorse Pearce including former Democratic Governor Jerry Apodaca and Dorothy Runnels, a lifelong Democrat and widow of former Congressman Harold Runnels.

‘As a lifelong Democrat and current Mayor of Grants, my top priority is creating good paying jobs for the citizens I serve. That’s why I’m endorsing Steve Pearce for Governor: he will be a jobs governor for all New Mexicans. Steve Pearce is the only candidate in this race with the business experience needed to bring good paying jobs and sustainable economic growth to all of New Mexico, including rural parts of our state like Cibola County. He is a dedicated public servant, serving not only as a combat pilot in Vietnam but also in the New Mexico legislature and now the United States Congress. His broad experience is what we need in a Governor.

‘As Governor, I know that Steve Pearce will work across the aisle, putting political parties aside to move our state forward. I know from personal experience that his opponent will not. I am proud to join fellow Democratic leaders across the state to endorse Steve Pearce for Governor, a leader who will work with all New Mexicans to get our state back on track,’ said Mayor Hicks.”
