Good morning, .

Let’s make it a HUGE win for Gov. Newsom and California Dems. I want the GQP to be embarrassed for even attempting to recall him and wasting so much time and money.

Please take time to vote if you haven't. You can vote today in one of several ways and even register and vote today if you need to.

There is too much at stake - rights for women, minorities, LGBTQIA people, not to mention reasonable COVID procedures for the state and the state budget. I've worked some phone banks. Nobody I've talked to wanted Larry Elder anywhere near the governor's office. Some just didn't realize how important their vote was or that they still had to vote no if they were against the recall. Spread the word.

Voting starts at 7:00 A.M. and ends at 8:00 P.M. Be sure to :vote:

All elections matter and high turnout builds support and enthusiasm for our candidates and sends a message to Republicans that we aren't letting them walk over us.

With that in mind, if you live in New Mexico's 1st Congressional district, make sure you vote by 7PM today in your special election to fill a U.S. House seat. The 1st district is located in the north-central portion of the state and includes all of Torrance and parts of Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Valencia counties.

Deb Haaland, who held this seat, is now our Secretary of the Interior and we need to make sure Democratic nominee Melanie Stansbury fills it. Turnout needs to be high.

Remind friends and family in the area and vote. :vote: :nm:
