RPNM Condemns Disgusting 11th Hour Tv Ad Funded by Nm House Speaker Brian Egolf That Portrays Police as the Gestapo

Political Ad Insults Police Officers and Stigmatizes Pro-Life Platform in Attack Against House District 29 Candidate

Albuquerque, November 7—The Republican Party of New Mexico is outraged at the release of a despicable and insulting last-minute televised election ad funded by outgoing New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf. It's inconceivable that anyone would have the audacity to release such a horrific ad and to explicitly show such hatred of our police departments.

In Egolf's commercial--an assault on Republican House District 29 candidate Greg Cunningham--he brutalizes police officers. They are portrayed as the Gestapo, stopping women from getting abortions in New Mexico. The ad shows a woman driving another young woman to an abortion appointment. The officers in the commercial interrogate her about if she is pregnant. Then the officers forcibly remove the two from the car, with the words "REJECT GREG CUNNINGHAM" appearing on the screen.

New Mexico Democrats Attack Law Enforcement in Disgusting Political Ad

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—A new political ad targeting law enforcement and attacking Republican candidate for state House District 29 Greg Cunningham has appeared in the final days of the 2022 election. The ad's disclaimer says it was paid for by Speaker Egolf's political action committee, on behalf of Democrat candidate Joy Garratt.

Representative Rod Montoya (Farmington), House Minority Whip, had this to say in response: "At the last moment, as their closing argument for this campaign, Democrats have dropped the mask and shown us who they really are. They are attacking police officers and framing them as predators in a new ad attacking Greg Cunningham, a former Albuquerque police officer. This is disgusting, and it exposes who they really are."

"I call on Joy Garratt to disavow this horrendous attack on law enforcement. I call on Speaker Egolf's PAC, the responsible party, to take this ad down immediately and apologize to law enforcement all over the state for this blatant political attack on them. This is completely outrageous that they would try to score political points at the expense of the hardworking police officers of Albuquerque."

Debate-Gate Day 3: MLG Refuses to Deny Cheating Question

MLG Deputy Campaign Manager Confirms MLG Received Questions and Used Them for Debate-Prep

Albuquerque, NM –  Several media outlets continue to cover the staggering Debate-Gate cheating scandal casting a dark shadow over Michelle Lujan Grisham's campaign in the final days of the election. The Governor has refused to deny whether or not her campaign cheated in that 2018 KOB-TV debate, or in this year's debates with Mark Ronchetti. 

KOB TV itself aired another story Friday night, clearly reporting that MLG's Communications Director and Deputy Campaign Manager, James Hallinan, received the questions from KOB and forwarded them directly to MLG. KOB also confirmed that Lujan Grisham used those questions to prepare for their debate.

Biden must stand up for victims of sexual assault

A statement from the Republican Governors Association:

"Joe Biden said Andrew Cuomo should "resign" when allegations of sexual harassment were levied against him. Yet, even though Michelle Lujan Grisham sexually assaulted a gay male staffer, then wrote him a $150,000 settlement check, President Biden still thinks Lujan Grisham deserves reelection," said RGA spokesman Will Reinert. "Joe Biden must condemn Lujan Grisham for her actions, and call off the Governor's allies who still send near daily death threats to her victim."

This week's Emerson College poll shows that 49% of New Mexico's voters disapprove of the job Biden is doing. Only 45% approve of Biden.

RPNM Condemns Democratic New Mexico House Candidate's Disgusting and Insensitive Tweet About Santa Fe Murder Victim

Albuquerque, November 2—The Republican Party of New Mexico condemns and is horrified to learn of a now-deleted tweet by Democratic House District 24 candidate Rep.

MLG wants NM like Newsom's CA

California's Governor Gavin Newsom is headed to NM today to campaign with Michelle Lujan Grisham.

We knew MLG was a big fan of Newsom when she did her best impression of the California Governor's French Laundry scandal. (remember MLG's jewlerygate?)

Yet here is what Lujan Grisham wants New Mexico to look like under her leadership if reelected:

MLG's victim's tell-all

The man whom Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham sexually assaulted and paid $150k in hush money to settle the claims is speaking out, and he spills even more details about the abuse he suffered while working as the MLG's campaign communications director.

Take a look:

In a series of interviews with The New Mexican, Hallinan revealed never-before-reported details about the alleged incident, including that he called three high-ranking Democrats — Lt. Gov. Howie Morales, Attorney General Hector Balderas and State Auditor Brian Colón — immediately afterward to tell them what he experienced.

MLG's bizzare claim

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham bizarrely claimed over the weekend that under her leadership New Mexico is "winning in nearly every category."

New Mexico ranks dead last in student proficiency in math & reading, it's the 2nd most violent state in America, and has the 5th highest unemployment rate.

So what exactly is MLG referring to?
