About Us

New Mexico has been at the bottom
of the good lists for far too long.

Despite being one of the most beautiful, welcoming, and friendly places to live in the U.S., the health and welfare of New Mexico lags far behind its neighbors. Generational poverty, record crime, a lack of opportunities for our young, and an education system that offers too little support to our teachers are a handful of the many issues our legislature has long been unable to solve. Respect New Mexico is an effort to finally change that.

More than one hundred candidates for the House and Senate have pledged to take bold, commonsense action to help the people of our state finally and fully thrive—without compromising our values, traditions, and proud heritage. We’re Republicans and former Democrats who believe partisan divides are old and unhelpful. We ask you to judge us not by party, but by our promise to respect New Mexico in everything we do.

Let’s give New Mexico the respect it deserves.

If you’re tired of politics dividing us, if you’re wary of those who want to turn our state into California or New York, if you want to see the place you love finally get off the bottom of all the good lists, join us.
