The results of the election are in. Obviously, I was hopeful for a different ending, as were so many of you. New Mexicans spoke last night at the polling booth, and made their selection in my race and several others.
I hope that Rep. Lujan improves his service and representation to the people of New Mexico in his next term. It is disappointing that fear and negative campaigning are so effective in our media driven climate. We logged more than 110,000 miles, and handed out more than 30,000 copies of the U.S. Constitution in my effort to meet with the voters and represent the people. For the thousands of you who have supported me through your volunteer efforts, I cannot thank you enough. This loss is bitter because we put so much effort into it. To those who have contributed financially to my campaign effort, thank you. To the many who prayed daily for my health and success. God bless you.
I ask for your help in collecting our campaign signs around the district and either recycling them or returning them to your County GOP headquarters or chairman. The sign of a well run campaign is in the timely and orderly removal of campaign signs. With your help, we have run an incredible campaign. Please help collect all of the Republican candidate signs in your final efforts assisting me. Thank you for your help.
The sun rises this morning on a new day. This day has shown a wave of Constitutional conservatism victories across this nation and victories for common sense in the Governor’s race and Secretary of State’s race among others. Today is a brighter day for New Mexicans and I look forward to working with so many of you to continue to improve New Mexico and our nation for our children and grandchildren.
