New Mexicans Explain Why They’re Voting for Melanie in “FAR”
State Representative and Democratic candidate for Congress Melanie Stansbury released a new ad title “FAR” this week highlighting her impressive record working to end childhood hunger, improve infrastructure, and help those affected by COVID-19.
While Representative Stansbury has fought for these common sense policies, her opponent Mark Moores has repeatedly shown that he’s out of touch with New Mexicans. In recent years he’s voted against raising the minimum wage, expanding access to health care, and providing paid sick leave. And despite accepting nearly $2 million in PPP loans, Moores has publicly opposed the American Recovery Act. It’s no surprise that instead of running on that record, his campaign has stooped to lies and fear mongering in recent ads.
“‘FAR’ shows exactly why Melanie Stansbury’s campaign resonates with voters,” said DPNM Chair Jessica Velasquez. “She’s a proud Burqueña with a long record of passing legislation that has a direct impact on New Mexico families. Despite Mark Moores’ desperate lies, New Mexicans are making it clear that Representative Stansbury is the candidate who will uplift our voices and fight for our values.”
