Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement in response to Vice President Mike Pence’s planned visit to New Mexico:

“The Trump administration is sending Vice President Pence to New Mexico to distract from their long record of broken promises. Republicans claim that they’ll fight for working people, but then they turn around and offer tax breaks to billionaires and multinational corporations. New Mexicans see right through this hypocrisy, and that’s why we’re ready to put a Democrat in the White House in 2020.”
