Last week New Mexico House Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos) learned she had received an extremely rare endorsement. Breaking normal precedent, President Barack Obama decided to lend his support to targeted swing State House races and selected Garcia Richard, an up-and-coming leader in the New Mexico Legislature.
“This is a unique honor to be endorsed by our President,” Garcia Richard said. “I’ve worked hard to bridge the divide between state and federal issues and support our local contractors and LANL. This election there is only one progressive in the race willing to make the tough decisions to move New Mexico forward and I thank President Obama for the support.”
Voters can expect to see more materials from President Obama supporting Garcia Richard, as well as a phone call before Election Day Nov. 8. For more information or to get involved with the campaign – check out www.StephanieGarciaRichard.com
