Politics: Enter at your own risk

Albuquerque, June 17—Today in a unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Catholic foster care agency that refused to accept same-sex couples. The following is a statement from RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce on the important ruling:

"This Supreme Court decision is a victory for religious liberty. Our nation's Constitution makes it clear that faith-based organizations or groups should not be subjected to government interference or harassment due to their religious beliefs on marriage. The Constitution guarantees religious freedom, and this was the right decision. The exercise of religion should have the highest protection in our land, and the Justices agreed."

Albuquerque, June 11—The following is a statement from RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce after today's announcement by the Governor that the Workforce Solutions Department will see improvements of its operating systems with an emphasis on processing unemployment claims:

"Today the Governor said 'New Mexicans expect and deserve a state government that can deliver for them no matter the circumstance.' This Governor has embarrassed New Mexico and its citizens with a Department that has failed the people and led to fraud. The Workforce Solutions Department is in shambles, out of date and things got so bad its Secretary quit. The Governor is the state's Chief Executive, and she continues to exhibit her incompetence to oversee a government that works properly for its citizens. Overpayments, fraud, outdated hardware and software—the list goes on. All this as New Mexico has among the worst unemployment rates in the nation. Lujan Grisham's promises today are too little too late as more and more New Mexicans suffer."

Governor Resorts to Immature Name-calling as Protesters Remind the Chief Executive of Her Failed Performance

Albuquerque, June 9—Gov. Lujan Grisham is showing constituents her true colors—and it's not related to any county lockdown status. She is avoiding her constituents and the truth.

The Governor is ducking the public after she found out first-hand at her reelection kickoff how angry citizens are at her dictatorial and unjust policies.

When Lujan Grisham announced in Albuquerque her intention to seek reelection, a small group of protesters exercised their right to demonstrate. They shouted out how she has destroyed our economy, treated New Mexicans like "subjects" and infringed upon peoples' freedoms with her inequitable and illegal COVID policies and impulsive actions.

The Governor couldn't handle it. She panicked as she was reminded of how she's treated people this past year.

The Governor then lashed out at these constituents, calling them "QAnon lizard people." Is this the way to treat New Mexicans? This outburst was inexcusable and childish, and her remarks were offensive and hateful.

Albuquerque, June 8—The following is a statement from RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce on yesterday's NM Supreme Court ruling against businesses affected by the state's pandemic health orders. The Justices unanimously decided that struggling or closed establishments are not automatically entitled to compensation to cover their devastating losses.

"This is the latest example of the New Mexico Supreme Court politicizing its rulings. The Democrat-dominated high court—some on the bench appointed by the Governor--continues to rule in favor of the Lujan Grisham administration. This ruling defies logic, fairness and justice and is an insult to our hurting business communities that have had to endure hardship and forced permanent closings. This Court refuses to be objective or to understand what's at stake for our small businesses and their employees. The decision also clearly reveals that the NM Supreme Court will allow the Governor to use her apparent unlimited power to do as she chooses."

The Sale of Such Clothing and Masks Is Offensive and Wrong

Albuquerque, June 4—The Republican Party of New Mexico condemns the sale of shirts and masks being sold on Amazon that read "Blue Lives Murder." RPNM believes such an anti-police message is unconscionable and downright dangerous.

RPNM finds these shirts and masks offensive and joins law enforcement, police unions and others in a call to remove these items from being sold. It's imperative that we stand with our police.

"The sale of these shirts and other items is shocking and horrifying," said RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce. "We denounce these sales. These are turbulent times when police officers are being attacked across our country. This sends the wrong message and will provoke more violence against the men and women in blue. RPNM will always support law enforcement. These brave heroes serve and protect our communities, and to promote and sell apparel and masks with these words is immoral and cannot be tolerated."

The National Economy Added Just 559,000 Jobs in May as the Biden Administration Continues to Squander the Strong Economy It Inherited

Albuquerque, June 4—President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats' failed policies have again given us another month where the economy fell short of expectations.

For the second straight month America is adding fewer jobs than expected—20% fewer than economists forecast.

In May 20,000 construction jobs were lost, 5,800 retail jobs disappeared and the labor force participation rate dropped. Meantime, the number of Americans working part time for economic reasons rose.

We have not recovered 7.6 million or 34% of the jobs lost due to COVID, and 9.3 million Americans remain unemployed. In May nearly 8 million Americans were unable to work because their employer was closed or had lost the business due to the pandemic.

This is no surprise.

Democratic lockdown policies are having a lasting impact on our workers. More than 1.5 million mothers have dropped out of the workforce, and many working moms are forced to stay home because schools have not reopened.

States with Republican leadership are leading the recovery despite Biden's failed policies. Their states have reopened and economies are humming.

Under Autocratic, Selfish Governor, New Mexico Remains at the Bottom in Education and at the Top in Joblessness

Albuquerque, June 3--Today's announcement by Gov. Lujan Grisham that she intends to run for a second term in 2022 is unfortunate for the people of New Mexico. This Governor's administration has been full of scandals, mismanagement, deceit and hypocrisy.

Lujan Grisham has hurt New Mexicans with poor leadership, unjust decisions and weak management. She doesn't deserve to serve again or deserve the respect of the voters of New Mexico.

New Mexico remains at the bottom nationally in education, job growth and opportunity. The Land of Enchantment has the 2nd highest unemployment rate at a whopping 8.3%. After three years of Lujan Grisham at the helm, New Mexico continues to find itself on shaky fiscal footing, a mecca for criminals and a national embarrassment, thanks to her poor political and legislative priorities. She vetoed $1.2 billion in vital federal COVID funding for our hurting constituents, and her radical policies have driven a stake through the heart of New Mexico.

This past year, the Governor's unfair and illegal decisions during the pandemic killed our economy, lost thousands of jobs and cost our children a school year with no classrooms. Many students and job seekers have had to move out of state to return to a normal, productive life. The Governor even gave her staff pay raises while suffering New Mexicans were waiting in food lines.

Governor Lujan Grisham has one thing on her mind. 

Yep, even amid a flurry of scandals and while at war with two of her local TV news stations, MLG is solely focused on getting reelected with a campaign launch set for this evening.

Sounds about right.

"Whether Governor Lujan Grisham is missing deadlines to ensure local schools are properly funded or using taxpayer money for wagyu beef, all that she cares about is staying in office after this next election," said RGA spokesman Will Reinert. "New Mexicans are fed up with their Governor embarrassing their state and are ready to vote for Republican leadership to take control in 2022."

P.S. Campaign staff you have been WARNED.
