Senator Morales is currently campaigning for Lieutenant Governor, in tandem with the Democratic nominee for Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham.

“Don’t miss this chance to hang out with New Mexico’s next Lt. Governor, and let him know how much you support him,” advised Frances Vasquez, chair of the Grant County Democrats. Making time for a rare trip home in the midst of his statewide campaign, Senator Morales will also headline a public forum on education at the WNMU Library later (5:00 pm) on the same day.
“Howie Morales has led the fight in the State Senate on so many issues of vital interest to everyone in Grant County. From improving education to affordable healthcare to preserving the integrity of the Gila Wilderness to better jobs and equal opportunities for all, Howie has been there for us,” asserted Ms. Vasquez. “Now let’s be there for him. Come say hello and show your support for Howie on Thursday.”
