Mick Rich Responds to Move To Reinstate Straight Party Voting

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, Aug. 30, 2018 – Mick Rich, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, responded to New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver’s move to reinstate straight-party voting for the November general election.

“If our Secretary of State wants to improve and speed up the voting process, she should send out a voting guide and sample ballot to every registered voter,” Rich said. “That would ensure we have a prepared and informed electorate. Other states do this. We don’t.”

Mick Rich Responds to Release Of Taos Compound Defendants

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, Aug. 29, 2018 – Mick Rich, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in New Mexico, responded to the dismissal by to District Court judges in Taos of all the initial child abuse counts against five defendants arrested at a remote Taos County compound earlier this month.

“No one should get more than one chance to hurt our kids,” Rich said. “These types of cases are the inevitable result of open borders and sanctuary cities, which both of my opponents support.”

Poll Shows Tight Race Among Likely Voters

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, Aug. 21, 2018The Mick Rich for U.S. Senate campaign today released results from a telephone survey of 500 registered likely voters across New Mexico.

Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich gathered just 41% of the vote among those likely to go to the polls. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson came in third place. Because Johnson is well known, it is safe to assume that much of the five percent of undecided voters either will not vote or will vote for the Republican nominee, Mick Rich.

(among those likely to vote)

U.S. Senate (3-way)
Heinrich 41%
Rich 34%
Johnson 19%
Undecided 5%

“This poll shows Mick Rich within seven points of Heinrich on Election Day,” said campaign spokesman, Nathan James. “But as the election of President Trump proved, it’s not polls that make elections, it’s the people.

“This election will come down to grassroots activation and voter motivation – which candidate inspires people to vote,” James added. “For the working families of New Mexico, Mick Rick is that candidate.”

Poll details: A random sample of this type is likely to yield a margin of error of +4.5% in 95 out of 100 cases. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of the responses were completed among cell phone users. Responses were gathered July 31-August 2, 2018.
