Breitbart: Former New Mexico state representative Yvette Herrell told Breitbart News Saturday that Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) and House Democrats’ impeachment “charade” is wearing thin for Americans and New Mexicans.
Herrell, who hopes to unseat Torres Small (D-NM) in the 2020 congressional elections, told Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle that the New Mexico Democrats’ impeachment “charade” is wearing thin with her constituents in the New Mexico second congressional district.
A poll conducted by the Tarrance Group found that Herrell serves as the “clear frontrunner” for the Republican primary nomination in New Mexico’s second district. The survey found that Herrell has 43 percent support, Claire Chase has 13 percent, and Chris Mathys has 12 percent support. Herrell also has 48 percent, or a near majority, of support from those who describe themselves as “very conservative.”
Herrell said that Rep. Torres Small ran as a pragmatic Democrat; however, she moved to back impeachment instead of improving the lives of the average New Mexican.
“I think disappointment would be the understatement because you’re absolutely right. She ran in the midterm as a moderate Democrat, that she would work or the people of New Mexico protect our industries, our culture, our way of life. She’s anything but a moderate, her voting record is 93 percent of the time with Nancy Pelosi, truly not conducive to the people of New Mexico. People want to secure the border, that border wall is very important,” the New Mexico conservative added. read more
