The Dianna Duran campaign has released the following factual comparison between Secretary of State Dianna Duran and her opponent Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie T. Oliver– as I’ve followed this important race this election cycle, I’ve observed many inconsistencies in Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie T. Oliver’s walk and her talk. We can count on big money and big names to pull her in the direction she will follow, not the best interests of New Mexicans, the law, or her job duties!
Dianna Duran v. Maggie Toulouse Oliver
The Striking—and very Alarming—Contrasts
Almost as soon as Dianna Duran was elected, the extreme far-left activists of the Democratic Party announced that Secretary of State Dianna Duran would be their number one target—it did not matter what kind of job she did, or what kind of record she built.
The Party Bosses immediately began recruiting their DARK MONEY operatives to spend thousands of unaccountable dollars in favor of Democrat Party boss Sam Bregman’s hand-picked candidate, Maggie Toulouse Oliver.
Oliver is a long-time political consultant and activist who used her standing with ACORN-like activists such as Progress Now New Mexico and other extremist community activist groups to get appointed as Bernalillo County Clerk.
Maggie Oliver has a long-standing relationship with dark money organizations, and in fact worked for one as a campaign manager and consultant, running campaigns for a number of years.
Even while serving as an elections supervisor—someone who should be viewed as a neutral arbiter on partisan issues—Maggie has doubled down on her political activism, openly campaigning for major public policy initiatives and causes.
Maggie’s kind of left-wing activism and partisanship may be desirable for someone running for the legislature, or for governor, or for president, but that is not what voters want when they elect someone to count the votes.
To count the votes, and fairly supervise the elections process, New Mexicans want someone who is fair, impartial, even-handed, and who follows the law.
