Las Cruces, NM — Today, EDF Action Votes and LCV Victory Fund launched a television ad campaign exposing politician Yvette Herrell’s record of putting special interests before New Mexico’s interests. The ad outlines Herrell’s connection to corporate lobbyist while “paving the way to sell off New Mexico’s public lands.”

EDF Action Votes and LCV Victory Fund ads will start running on broadcast and cable in the Albuquerque and El Paso (Las Cruces) media markets as well as on cable in the Amarillo media market with a buy of approximately $566,000 from EDF Action Votes and $310,000 from LCV VF.

“Just two short years ago, voters rejected politician Yvette Herrell and her special interest agenda, and now they have the opportunity to do it again,” said EDF Action President Joe Bonfiglio. “It’s all too clear that New Mexico families can’t trust Herrell to stand up to the special interests.”

“Yvette Harrell wants to put New Mexico’s public lands in the hands of the corporate special interests that fund her campaign instead of New Mexico’s families,” said Megan Jacobs, LCV Victory Fund National Campaigns Director. “We need to keep Rep. Torres Small in Washington, fighting to protect New Mexico’s public lands and way of life.”
