CVNM & CVNM Action Fund Endorsements – 2020 Primary

Conservation Voters New Mexico Action Fund is a nonpartisan “coordinated” political action committee (PAC) that works to elect pro-conservation candidates and to defeat anti-conservation candidates at the state level up to the amount allowed by New Mexico campaign finance laws. The goal of CVNM & CVNM Action Fund’s endorsement process is to use the power of endorsements and political action to implement and reinforce our cycle of accountability to build the strongest possible conservation policy outcomes at the state level.

The 2020 primary election endorsements build on the conservation majority that won seats in the 2016 and 2018 general elections. If elected, these candidates will strengthen the political voice for the future of New Mexico’s air, land, water and communities.

We need a Legislature that reflects New Mexico’s diverse communities, that will support equity and inclusion in decision-making, and that reflects our shared values for protecting our air, land and water. We need new voices in New Mexico’s politics who will not look backwards in an attempt to “return to normal” but who will look forward to a new, diversified, clean energy economy with a healthy environment and sustainable, reliable state revenues.
