Statement from Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association:
“We applaud Attorney General Balderas’ resounding re-election victory tonight. As a member of DAGA’s Executive Committee, AG Balderas not only a champion for the people of New Mexico, but also a leader among his fellow Democratic AGs. His voice is ever-present on protecting those most in need and by all accounts, he is a true People’s Lawyer. We look forward to AG Balderas continuing to be a street fighter for justice for New Mexico families and communities.”
“AG Balderas told the New York Times that Democratic AGs were ‘becoming, potentially, the fourth branch of government’ in their fight back against the Trump administration’s lack of respect for the rule of law—and AG Balderas is right. Alongside his fellow Democratic AGs, AG Balderas’ will continue to protect immigrant families, defend DACA and the Dreamers, and safeguard public lands. We are honored to have AG Balderas continue to serve as a leader in our room.”
