Moores Was Only Candidate in CD-1 to Skip KOB Appearance
Mark Moores repeatedly dodged the New Mexico press this week in a clear attempt to avoid answering questions about the topics that are most important to voters in the upcoming NM-01 Congressional race.
While all other candidates participated in an in-person interview with KOB, Moores “declined to be interviewed” by local reporters. Moores also “ignored multiple requests” from the Paper to respond to a written survey. Instead, during the same week, Moores spoke at length to Matthew Boyle of far-right Breitbart News.
“Senator Moores is prioritizing extremist media outlets over opportunities to engage with New Mexican voters,” said DPNM Chair Jessica Velasquez. “Moores can’t explain why he voted against reasonable measures like raising the minimum wage or providing paid sick leave for workers, so he’s avoiding questions at all costs. This cowardice and lack of accountability is exactly why Moores is wrong for Congress and wrong for New Mexico.”
