This morning, New Mexicans for Michelle released a new ad, "Smear," responding to Steve Pearce’s hateful ad attacking a stage four pancreatic cancer patient. StevePearce’s ad has earned condemnation from New Mexicans across the state, and the Santa Fe New Mexican called on Pearce to “apologize for this ad and get back to making his case,” and Geno Zamora, Diego Zamora’s brother said “Grotesque desperation does not become you, Mr. Pearce. I pray that you learn to demonstrate the strength, courage, and dignity that my brother has shown in much tougher circumstances than you face today.”

“I have seen a lot, but I never thought I’d see someone running for statewide office go as low as Steve Pearce, attacking a stage 4  cancer patient in order to score cheap political points. Congressman Pearce owes Diego, his family, and New Mexico voters an apology for this disgusting and hateful ad,” said New Mexicans for Michelle Campaign Manager Dominic Gabello.

"Smear" calls Pearce out for his ad, and highlights his extreme record, including his long-standing opposition to increasing affordable health care access for New Mexicans.
