Another Extremist GOP Candidate Enters Gubernatorial Race

Another Extremist GOP Candidate Enters Gubernatorial Race

Louie Sanchez announced his plan to run for governor today, joining a field of out-of-touch GOP candidates. Sanchez has shown his extremist views by supporting restrictive anti-choice laws, including legislation that would directly challenge Roe v. Wade. He opposed common sense gun safety legislation that is favored by the majority of New Mexicans and flagrantly endangered public health at the beginning of the pandemic. Sanchez has made it clear that his loyalty is to President Trump, despite the former president’s role in inciting violence on January 6th, saying “I’m 100% supportive of our President.” 

“GOP candidates continue to race to the right, toward extremist policies that would threaten the health and safety of New Mexicans,” said DPNM Chair Jessica Velasquez. “Louie Sanchez’s run for governor is another example of how New Mexico Republicans are more focused on impressing the former president than representing voters.”
