It’s Clear – Yvette Herrell Will Continue to Put the National MAGA Agenda over New Mexicans
With Yvette Herrell trailing in recent polling, DPNM expects her to backtrack on some of her most extreme moments from her career during tonight’s televised debate on KOB. With radical Herrell slipping in the polls, it’s no surprise that she’s trying to run away from her record in the waning days of her campaign. But New Mexico voters have a right to know who Herrell really is.
Just some of Yvette Herrell’s most extreme moments:
- Herrell sponsored the Life at Conception Act, which would ban all abortions and certain types of contraceptives, such as IUDs nationwide – including New Mexico.
- Herrell wanted to criminalize and imprison women who got an abortion, even in cases of rape, incest or to save the mother’s life.
- One of Yvette Herrell’s first votes in Congress was against certifying 2020 election results and she recently voted against the Presidential Election Reform Act, which will help protect our electoral system from future subversion attempts, like the January 6th insurrection.
- Yvette Herrell promoted the use of Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19, putting people in danger.
- Despite taking credit, Yvette Herrell voted against helping New Mexico fire victims of the Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak fire, many of whom lost everything in the worst fire in state history.
- Yvette Herrell has a close association with criminal insurrectionist Couy Griffin and touted his endorsement.
“Yvette Herrell is stuck between her commitment to the far-right MAGA factions of the national GOP and stumbling to find a campaign message that resonates with New Mexico voters,” said Daniel Garcia, Communications Director of the Democratic Party of New Mexico. “But New Mexicans are smart, we know that Yvette Herrell has been one of the most extreme, far-right members of Congress throughout her term. Yvette Herrell has put the national MAGA agenda over the well-being of the Second District. Gabe Vasquez has the concrete plans to improve the lives of working New Mexico families.”
