DPNM Calls on Steve Pearce’s NM GOP to Denounce Election Denial Ahead of Election Day
Republicans Can Be Expected to Pick and Choose Which Election Results to Undermine
Today, the Democratic Party of New Mexico calls on Steve Pearce’s New Mexico GOP to denounce election denial and extremism ahead of the election. No doubt about it, radical MAGA extremism has become the norm of the New Mexico GOP.
Across the country, Republicans spread conspiracy theories and make excuses when they lose elections, and Steve Pearce’s New Mexico GOP is no exception. New Mexico’s most prominent Republicans adhere to the most conspiratorial, anti-democratic factions of their party to make up for their lack of policies that would move New Mexico forward.
“On Tuesday night, New Mexico’s GOP can be expected to pick and choose which election results to complain about. This is why DPNM calls on Steve Pearce and his New Mexico Republican Party to accept the election results, win or lose. Anything else is damaging to the fabric of our democracy.
“Divisive, conspiratorial, and dangerous rhetoric has led to threats against our own party staff and puts the MAGA agenda over helping New Mexicans. It is important that we stop dangerous election denial and hold those who espouse it accountable, and the only way to do that is by voting,” said Democratic Party of New Mexico Communications Director Daniel Garcia.
Some examples of NM Republicans undermining Democracy include:
Even though she’s running to be New Mexico’s top election official, GOP candidate for NM Secretary of State Audrey Trujillo openly spreads election denialism and has pushed conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election. She believes the 2020 election was, in her words, a “coup” orchestrated by President Biden and she supported Otero County’s refusal to certify New Mexico’s 2022 primary election results.
