RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Republicans say they have unveiled a “moderate agenda” around economic development in a bid to capture the state House and Senate.
GOP House Minority Leader James Townsend and Republican Senate Minority Whip Craig Brandt on Tuesday released a plan they say will bring moderate Democrats and Republicans together following one of the nation’s worst recessions amid the pandemic.
Townsend says Republicans are running one of its most diverse set of candidates for legislative races.
Brandt says the “Fair Deal” comes after several liberal Democrats defeated moderate Democrats in the state Senate.
The blueprint calls for improving the state's bond rating and for criminal justice reforms.
