It’s time for Fresh Ideas in NM GOP Leadership; Eddy Aragon Announces run for NM GOP Chairman

Only two days after the November 2020 General Election and the race for New Mexico Republican Leadership is heating up due to a number of perceived failings by Steve Pearce, Jim Townsend and Republican Leadership in New Mexico.

It’s time to clean house of the out of touch Republican Leadership in New Mexico

I previously announced that I will be seeking a leadership position within the Republican Party of New Mexico to much fan fare on Twitter. The race is heating up for NM GOP Chairman because on November 5, 2020 Eddy Aragon, owner of KIVA / Rock of Talk conservative talk show host announces that he will be running for NM GOP Chairman to replace chairman Steve Pearce.

Steve Pearce became NM GOP Chairman after an unsuccessful bid for New Mexico Governor in 2018 against Michelle Lujan Grisham, which also gave NM Legislature a Democrat Majority, as well as all five federal seats during the 2018 Midterm Election. In the 2020 General Election, Yvette Herrell saved the NM GOP from two consecutive ‘shut outs’ at the Federal Level, and there were a number of NM State GOP surprise winners by true conservative patriots including Stefani Lord, Crystal Diamond and Joshua Sanchez.

New Mexico was an important battleground state for President Donald Trump’s re election for US President, who invested significant resources in grassroots and down ballot turn-out. One of the loudest criticisms of Steve Pearce and NM State Republican Leadership is their failure to embrace Donald Trump as top of the ticket, the extremely misguided “Respect New Mexico” campaign which only added to the fractured landscape, and failure to adequately prepare and campaign for all Republicans in the mail-in voting style election of November 2020.
