RLC Endorses David Clements for U.S. Senate in New Mexico
LAS CRUCES, NM - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) is pleased to announce the endorsement of David Clements for United States Senate in New Mexico. Clements is an attorney and former prosecutor from Las Cruces, New Mexico.
“David Clements is the clear choice for New Mexico voters to serve them in the United States Senate,” said RLC National Chairman Matt Nye. “David has spent his career upholding the Constitution and is committed to continuing that dedication in the U.S. Senate. As government spending and overreach climbs to unprecedented levels, we need more elected officials who will stand up and fight for the principles they are sworn to uphold and protect.”
Clements has already battled against a better funded and well known primary opponent. He shocked National political insiders after taking nearly half of the available delegates at the state’s Pre-Primary Convention in March, and continues to build momentum heading into the June 3rd Republican Primary. The winner of the Primary will go on to face Democratic Senator Tom Udall in November’s general election.
“Tom Udall is vulnerable in New Mexico,” said Nye. “He is one of only a few Democrats still advocating for the implementation of Obamacare, and is more concerned with playing partisan politics in Washington than ensuring the rights and liberties of the people of New Mexico.”
New Mexico RLC Chairman, Aaron Henry Diaz, commented, “David is offering an exciting choice to New Mexico voters. Not only is he attracting traditional Republicans with his message of economic freedom, young voters are energized to elect a Senator who will fight for their privacy rights in Washington D.C.
Youth for Clements chapters have begun operations at many of the major universities in New Mexico, showing Clements’ appeal to young voters reaches across the state, and is reminiscent of those efforts levied by Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in their inaugural campaigns for Senate.
David and his wife, Erin, reside in Las Cruces, New Mexico with their 3 year-old son Roland.
