ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Republican congressional hopeful in a critical New Mexico race who has made her “100% support for Donald Trump” part of her campaign once sought backing for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.

A March 2016 email from former New Mexico lawmaker Yvette Herrell asked fellow Republican state legislators if they were interested in supporting Cruz.

Her GOP primary opponents say the emails counters the story Herrell told voters in the 2018 race and recently that she supported Trump from “day one.”

Herrell’s campaign manager Dakotah Parshall dismissed the email and said Herrell was just being helpful to her fellow state legislators.
