Ledes from the Land of Enchantment

Running as a moderate, New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate deletes progressive tweets

In a statement to CNN on Thursday, Vazquez did not address the deleted tweets but said, “I have been clear all along: I do not believe defunding the police is a path toward a fair criminal justice system. That’s why, as a Las Cruces councilmember, I voted to increase funding for the police by millions and worked directly with our police chief to improve community policing… I will always put New Mexico’s oil and gas workers first, by supporting responsible fossil fuel development that protects their health, wages, and futures. At the same time, I will hold oil and gas companies accountable who are not paying their fair share and polluting our public lands.”
