This weekend’s convention was held out of state because of COVID-19 restrictions in New Mexico. Chairman Steve Pearce says they are working on several different topics.
“We just finished a session on business, we had a session earlier on running for office. So, it’s that stimulation that our people who run for office are everyday folks like yourself who never thought of running for office. It’s kind of that pick-up and getting people thinking of what they can do,” said Pearce.
Pearce added the party is looking ahead to the elections of 2022 and is focusing on the message that the party is diverse, big, and powerful.
