    On Friday, after U.S. Senate candidate Mark Ronchetti blasted Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and her cousin, Ben Ray Luján for their actions banning in-person campaigning, Ben Ray distances himself from Lujan Grisham, claiming they two are not related. Luján tweeted, “While I respect my friend, our governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, we’re not cousins. This may come as a surprise to you, but not all Hispanic people with the same last name are related.” It appears Luján was trying to claim Ronchetti thinks every Hispanic with the last name “Luján” is related for linking the two together. Lujan Grisham also commented...

    SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has had an invisible companion while directing New Mexico’s coronavirus response efforts this summer: incessant national political speculation about her potential role in a Joe Biden administration. The first-term Democratic governor has been repeatedly mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick – Biden has said he will pick a female running mate – or Cabinet member. Unlike some candidates, Lujan Grisham has not rejected the speculation or said she would decline an offer, but she has also not publicly touted her own credentials. “It’s flattering, but I try to just keep focused here,”...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr announced that 35 federal agents and additional resources will be coming to Albuquerque as part of the expansion of Operation Legend in a handful of cities across the United States. At a news conference in the White House on Wednesday, President Trump said the influx will be in cities where the leadership wants to “defund, defame or abolish” police. “Under Operation Legend we will soon send fed law enforcement to other cities that need help,” Trump said. “Other cities need help, they need it badly. They should call, they...

    As riots, protests, and racial unrest erupt in cities across the country, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said her administration is more interested in keeping protesters safe and allowing their voices to be heard than in the show of force President Donald Trump urged governors to display during a conference call Monday morning. The Washington Post, which obtained a recording of the call, reported that Trump berated the governors, called them “weak,” and said they would look like fools if they did not take back the streets. “Militarizing our response is incredibly callous, dangerous and tone deaf,” Lujan Grisham said in...

  • The 11 most logical picks for Joe Biden’s vice president, ranked (no men required)

    04/10/2020 2:14:02 PM PDT · by Libloather · 67 replies
    Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, after Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. The next big question in the race - beyond when and how Biden will be formally nominated amid a pandemic, of course - is who is going to fill out the ticket as Biden’s vice presidential running mate. The pick carries unusual importance, especially given Biden, who will turn 78 shortly after Election Day, would be the oldest president ever elected by far. We already know one thing about that pick: It will be a woman, as Biden pledged in a recent...

    New Mexico Goveror Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a red-flag gun bill Tuesday that will allow state district courts to order the temporary surrender of firearms, and she urged sheriffs to resign if they still refuse to enforce it. Flanked by advocates for stricter gun control and supportive law enforcement officials at a signing ceremony, Lujan Grisham said the legislation provides law enforcement authorities with an urgently needed tool to deter deadly violence by temporarily removing firearms from people who pose a threat to themselves or others. Some sheriffs from mostly rural areas opposed the bill in committee hearings as a...

    New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the federal lawsuit on Monday.

The federal “safe release” policy was canceled in October of 2018 due to the...

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has ordered the majority of National Guard troops deployed at her state's Southern border to withdraw, condemning what she called a "charade of border fear-mongering" by President Trump, who has warned of an immigration emergency in the region.

    SANTA FE, N.M. -- The governor of New Mexico ordered the withdrawal of the majority of the state's National Guard troops from the U.S. border with Mexico on Tuesday, in a move that challenges President Trump's description of a security crisis. Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the partial withdrawal shortly before Trump's State of the Union address. Her Republican predecessor deployed National Guard troops to the border in April 2018 at Trump's suggestion, and 118 remained there before Tuesday's reversal. "New Mexico will not take part in the president's charade of border fear-mongering by misusing our diligent National Guard troops,"...

At a news conference in the state Capitol, the Democratic governor described the order as a “game-changer” that outlines broad, state-level initiatives to make up for a lack of federal action on climate change. “We want to make sure we are doing something irrespective of failed policies and a lack of science going on at the federal level today,”...
