Dow shows grassroots dominance going into the fourth quarter of 2021.

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES – Rebecca Dow's gubernatorial campaign today announced that two months into her campaign efforts, and with nearly a month still remaining before fourth quarter reports are due, she has raised over $300,000 and has a full roster of County Chairs from every county in the state.

The average donation to Dow's campaign is $300. Her impressive grassroots fundraising gives her more than twice as much money in the bank compared to sitting Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's last campaign finance report.

"This fundraising milestone is a clear indicator of how exciting this campaign is for so many citizens who are ready for a leader who identifies with the values, hopes and dreams of the everyday New Mexican. Folks are just downright tired of letting one person control every aspect of their lives and being dragged down to the bottom by bad government," said Dow. "New Mexicans are resilient and know that with the right leadership, we can really thrive."

"If the fundraising isn't convincing enough," Dow continued, "the fact that influential grassroots leaders from every corner of the state have committed to stand with me certainly should demonstrate that I am the leading candidate to give MLG some serious competition. In the race for New Mexico governor, there are just two options: continue with MLG, who is drunk on power and will never end her executive orders while she's in office, or support Dow for New Mexico and give people the power to run their own lives again."
