ICYMI: The Santa Fe New Mexican Endorses Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for Re-Election
Today, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham secured a key endorsement from the Santa Fe New Mexican Editorial Board, New Mexico’s oldest newspaper company, saying, “serving as governor is a complex job, and it takes a leader who can juggle competing priorities, negotiate with friends and foes alike, understand the need to take the long view and who will make decisions with the interests of New Mexicans at heart. In her first term, Lujan Grisham demonstrated she has the vision, toughness and grit to get the job done.”
The Editorial Board cited Gov. Lujan Grisham’s long list of accomplishments during her first term, including investments in public safety, a first-of-its-kind tuition-free college program, and her work to improve New Mexico’s infrastructure in the face of natural disasters.
The Editorial Board added: “she deserves reelection, though not so much for what she has accomplished — and it’s a considerable list, as you will see — but for what she can do in a second term buoyed by a fat state budget and a smart to-do list.”
The endorsement comes as GOP candidate Mark Ronchetti is facing heat for his desperate attempts to walk back his extreme stances against abortion after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
