Michelle Lujan Grisham

Governor New Mexico Democrat
Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is deeply committed to keeping New Mexicans safe, especially from the consequences of senseless gun violence. In 2018, Governor Lujan Grisham was elected to serve the citizens of New Mexico as governor, making her the first Democratic Hispanic woman to be elected to such a role in US history. In this capacity, she has been a consistent advocate for commonsense solutions to prevent gun violence in her state and has delivered results that have kept guns off the streets.

Throughout her career in public service—whether she was serving as New Mexico’s secretary of health, as a representative in the US Congress, or now as governor—Governor Lujan Grisham has always put the needs of her community first. In her first term, Governor Lujan Grisham championed bipartisan legislation that strengthened the public safety system and increased funding for community-based violence intervention programs. She also pushed for universal background checks for gun purchases and signed legislation that allows the courts to temporarily disarm individuals who are at risk of harming themselves or others. With each piece of legislation she signed, Governor Lujan Grisham demonstrated the importance of passing measures that will save New Mexican lives and curb the scourge of gun violence, while also balancing the right to bear arms.

Now more than ever, governors play an instrumental role in the movement to end gun violence and increase public safety. Over the past four years, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has embraced that role and served as an example for leaders across the country. It is essential that we reelect her this fall so she can continue her work to keep New Mexicans safe from gun violence. 

We are proud to endorse Michelle Lujan Grisham for governor.
