Don’t let Dem Attorneys Cheat us out of NM Land Commissioner Seat!

November 4th, almost a month ago, Land Commissioner Ray Powell narrowly lost the popular vote in New Mexico to challenger Aubrey Dunn.  Because Mr. Dunn won the race by less than 0.5 percent, New Mexico state statute mandated an automatic recount.

While Dunn declared victory, Powell swore that the race was far from over and that he was “cautiously optimistic” that the recount would make him the winner.

But now, with the date set by the state for the recount fast approaching Commissioner Powell is decidedly against following the recount rules– instead it is clear that Powell intends to manipulate the voting system in an effort to win the Land Commissioner’s office in what is probably the last possible way.  Powell has gone from claiming he places trust in the election system, to taking his reelection fight to the courts. This week he filed a petition to stop the recount and the New Mexico Supreme Court granted his request.  According to Dunn, Powell is receiving the aid of 40 Democratic Party [national?] funded attorneys, so now the courts decide how the recount is handled and what procedures will be followed.

Tuesday Dunn voiced his concern about the all-Democrat New Mexico Supreme Court hearing arguments presented by attorneys from the Dunn and Powell campaigns, “If the Justices agree with Powell, the ballots from 873 people who say they registered at Department of Motor Vehicle offices will be counted,” Dunn continued, “In a state that gives drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, I find that concerning. And those votes would change the entire outcome of the race.”

Aubrey Dunn, who should should be the next New Mexico Land Commissioner is right. We should be concerned about any ineligible votes being counted. If provisionals weren’t counted during canvassing, why are they somehow qualified now?

TAKE ACTION: Make your voice heard and ensure that the VOTE BY THE PEOPLE, is not made void!
