Just hours before Michelle Lujan Grisham contrasts her vision and record of accomplishment with Steve Pearce’s extreme record and divisive agenda, 100 New Mexico Republicans and former Republican Party leaders publicly announced their support for her campaign for governor. The growing list includes current and former elected officials, every day voters, and community and industry leaders who believe she is the best candidate to provide the leadership necessary to create opportunities for families across the state.

To announce the group, Matt Caward, a lifelong Republican, business leader, and veteran, shared his confidence in Michelle Lujan Grisham's leadership, experience, and record, asking other Republicans to join him in putting state before party by supporting Michelle Lujan Grisham.
