Endorsements by Right to Life Committee of New Mexico PAC
in Statewide Contested Races Only

Questionnaires were sent only to candidates in statewide “contested races”; therefore only candidates in “contested races” were rated. Candidates are rated primarily based on their answers to our questionnaire with some deference to viability and previous pro-life voting records in tie-breakers. Since every candidate who did not respond was personally contacted and urged to send in their responses, candidates who failed to respond were automatically rated “failed to answer”, regardless of pro-life record or views. Party affiliation was not a factor in any rating but is listed here only for identification purposes -- (R} Republican and {D} Democrat.

Rating Code
Endorsed – Candidate agrees with RTLCNM positions
Answered - Candidate answered our questionnaire
Failed to Answer – Candidate failed to answer despite personal contact
