Card Gives Sept. 30 Debate Viewers Ways to Win Alongside Governor Lujan Grisham
When Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham takes the debate stage Friday night, New Mexicans will see the clear contrast between her leadership record and the lack of experience from her opponent, former TV weatherman and MAGA extremist Mark Ronchetti.
It can be hard to keep track of all of Ronchetti’s right-wing positions that are out-of-step with New Mexicans: banning abortion, undermining affordable healthcare, denying the climate crisis, working against unions and working New Mexicans, and opposing investments in education. But with the New Mexico Democratic Party Debate Night Bingo card, it’s a little easier for viewers to follow.
Today, DPNM unveiled the custom 2022 gubernatorial debate bingo card (below) with 25 squares to keep track of Ronchetti’s extremism, contradictions, and backpedaling during the hour-long debate airing on KOB.
“No matter what corner of Mark Ronchetti’s BINGO card you look at, it’s always far-right,” said Daniel Garcia, Communications Director at The Democratic Party of New Mexico. “The Democratic Party of New Mexico created this BINGO card to allow voters to follow all of the many ways that Mark Ronchetti will be out of touch with New Mexicans at tonight’s debate. Ronchetti may have 25 years of experience standing in front of a TV camera, but on policy issues, he will always stand with far-right MAGA Republicans.”
Watch the debate live at 7 p.m. Friday on KOB.com
