Hobbs – U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce (NM-02) announced Tuesday his candidacy for chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico.

If elected by the Republican Party’s State Central Committee Dec. 8, Pearce will serve a two-year term as chairman.

“As I campaigned for Governor over the past two years, I met New Mexicans in every corner of the state and from all walks of life who share a burning hope for a brighter future. Although we were not successful Nov. 6, the work to bring meaningful change to the state we love is not over,” Pearce said. “Cynthia and I know that we can work alongside our fellow New Mexicans to rebuild our Party, elect common sense candidates across the state, and continue to do good for New Mexico. I seek the chairmanship of the Republican Party of New Mexico not for the title, but instead for the opportunity to help create a new beginning for our party and a path to prosperity for our state.”

The Republican Party of New Mexico is governed by an approximately 500-member State Central Committee, elected by fellow Republicans from across the state. The election for chairman and the other RPNM officers is Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Marriott Pyramid of Albuquerque.
