The NMBC is a true grassroots operation that will educate individual voters about the candidates and issues in their district and motivate them to take that knowledge to the polls and vote.

It is the voter who will affect the change we need because educated voters will elect the best candidates when they understand the issues. Reaching those voters is where the NMBC will make a distinct difference in political races.

    Did you miss the BASH? Last Thursday at the Marriott hotel in Albuquerque, NMBC members gathered to hear Senators John Arthur Smith and Stuart Ingle on stage together discussing the events of our last legislative session and thoughts on moving forward.

    Last Thursday’s BASH (Business and Social Hour) event was a refreshing departure from the rough and tumble political climate of today, and an example of true statesmanship and friendly bipartisan comradery.  Both Senators  Smith and  Ingle were in true form at the BASH as they covered the events of our last legislative session and elaborated on the path forward for our state.
