About Me

I'm running for New Mexico State Senate District #33. I ran for NM State Representative 4 years ago and feel more of a need to run, to pick up votes up and down ballot for Democrats in my state and at the national level. My DU family provided much support 4 years ago (much with the help of our beloved Pinboy3niner) and I know I can count on support now. We're in this together. I have received the endorsements/support of Planned Parenthoood Votes New Mexico; AFSCME American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees; NEA National Education Association of New Mexico; AFT-NM American Federation of Teachers New Mexico; Sierra Club; and named a Gun Sense Candidate by Moms Demand Action. I was concerned in my interviews as I shared that I was running a Combined Campaign to elect Democrats up and down ballot, that I would not provide only my campaign information but always include information for (especially, because she is in a very tight race) US Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small, President Biden and all the local state senate, state representatives, county clerk, treasurer and commissioner. I worked hard to get a full ballot of Democrats, first time in over 25 years. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/committee-to-elect-denise-lang-browne-1

Please support new DUer Stephanie DuBois as you have supported me for nearly 19 years!

I’ve run for office before with DU support-not just financial but moral support, tech support (my God, what would I do without OmahaSteve?), emotional, mental, and even spiritual) and I’m eternally grateful for that. I’m asking again for DU support.

I’m in the eye of the hurricane, ground zero in violent rhetoric, grifters & traitors like ‘Cowboys for Trump’ Couy Griffin, but we have even worse in David Clements…more info in the coming weeks.

While I’m not running for office this election I recruited my friend and ‘partner in mischief’ for the past 20 years, Stephanie DuBois, to run for Otero County Commissioner and I’ll be asking for you to support this new DUer.

This was in 2010 at our second We Trust Women rally…DUer duhneece is in purple hoodee, and DUer and candidate Stephanie DuBois is second from right in ball cap.

Here’s Stephanie registering voters at the 2022 We Trust Women rally:

Two days ago Otero County Commission passed a resolution ‘Otero County is a Sanctuary for the Unborn.’ Truly horrible resolution but the GOOD NEWS:

Stephanie and I’ve been the lead organizers for the We Trust Women rallies since 2009 but we quit during Covid. A young woman called the newspaper a couple of months ago and was given my name. I told her I just couldn’t organize this year, she pleaded, I told her that if she would meet me at City Hall to fill out a permit (done as a courtesy but it ensures that we get all 4 corners of ‘our favorite intersection’ on the permit, and we get all 4 corners with no counter-protestors) and prepare a graphic with all the info, I would share it. It was incredibly electrifying. We got huge (for us) crowds at two rallies with a very diverse mix. Our group was mostly seniors, mostly Democrats….her group (she’s 22, gay, married, young mother) is young LGBTQ, some military (we have Holloman AFB here), far too many not registered to vote. We’ve organized into 4 teams to register voters at the only place we register more Dems and Independents , the barber shop that most minorities get their hair cut at (dangling p…). THEN, when our County proposed this resolution, we got many to come and speak out against the resolution …to no avail, but they attended their first-ever county commission meeting, they understand the need to elect Democrats up and down ballot.

I made the news chewing out Couy Griffin of Cowboys for Trump

I don’t know how to share the Tic Toc but here I am, briefly, on local news. PBS had their own story and included me. I was channeling the folks in the room, our folks.
I love that KRQE caught the laughter after Couy’s ‘…blah blah Marxist blah blah..’ comment. https://www.krqe.com/video/couy-griffin-will-not-receive-legal-representation-from-otero-county/7805820/
grogusimp is my friend’s tic toc ‘name’.

Can you imagine a grandma beginning a thought "I'm glad my grandson shot himself...?

My horror, my condemnation, my grief at my thinking yesterday, “I’m glad my grandson shot himself instead of others?”
Ethan, 19 almost 20, shot himself in the head April 4. Miraculously, he was almost right in front of UNM Hospital, and he’s speaking, texting, doing physical therapy. He refers to himself as Miracle Man, although now he has a brain abscess that they are having trouble treating.
But the idea anyone would think that is hard for me to wrap my head and heart around.
Don’t cry for me.

Guilty: Cowboys for Trump' founder Couy Griffin convicted in the second January 6 trial

Source: Business Insider

A federal judge found "Cowboys for Trump" leader Couy Griffin guilty of a misdemeanor charge connected to the Capitol attack, handing the Justice Department a victory in the second trial stemming from the insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Judge Trevor McFadden handed down the verdict Tuesday after federal prosecutors presented video footage showing Griffin, a New Mexico county commissioner, climbing a bike ramp and ascending a makeshift plywood ramp on his approach to the Capitol.

Griffin faces up to a year in prison on the misdemeanor charge of trespassing on restricted Capitol grounds.

McFadden acquitted Griffin on a separate disorderly conduct charge, which also carried a maximum sentence of a year in prison.

There are two more legal actions that may wake this guy up.

Now 'firing squads' suggested by phony (think Maricopa) audit

Our County Commission just voted for an ‘audit’ by Echo Mail. Disgraced Professor gave presentation about it and included suggesting ‘firing squads’. Link to video at the end of this ramble.
I’m in hell it feels. A potential for violence-this is Cowboys for Trump country including Couy Griffin’s “…the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat..”

A friend who attended (former military law enforcement) said this: This is my work in progress, any thoughts?
"So I went to the election audit meeting last night and I think it is important to let everyone know what is happening and the imminent danger our community is in.

The speakers were David and Erin Clements, David is a known conspiracy monger who is affiliated with multiple national Q anon influencers to include Mike Lindell (owner of mypillow) and Gen Mike Flynn so this is not just the local bad actors and money at play here.

I'm not going to go into great detail but what they provided was absolute garbage, graphs and charts with no context or source, made up terms like "manipulated fractional data points" and a magic algorithm that controls all of our votes, all nonsense that they laid out like any pyramid scam with the audience including Couy and Vicki lapping it up.

I could go on and on about how everything they said was false and propaganda, their presentation is easily debunked but that is a waste of time in this situation because the believers are already convinced and beyond reason. What does need to be addressed is their larger plan and goals and the imminent threat this poses to our community.

This is an coordinated attack on democracy that is being pushed nation wide, it's happened in AZ, GA and MI to name a few. Their goal is to destroy public confidence in the democratic process and grooming those disenfranchised voters for future violence. Their tactics do not end with stupid legal challenges and fake audits to funnel money out of government to grifters, it includes harassment, threats, acts of physical intimidation and violence, up to and including domestic terrorist attacks like January 6th.

This is about election integrity but it's about saving it from those that are actively trying to destroy it under the guise of it. This is not politics, this is a fight against organized crime, domestic terrorism, this is a fight for survival, a fight for the very fabric and foundation of our country and our community."

At 2:10:50 to 2:11:10 is firing squad comment (I’ve been told-I can’t hear it): I’ll have to post the link of video in a comment.

DUer duhneece update-phony electoral letters

Our own Cowboys for Trump Couy Griffin has a trial date for his 1/6 participation, March 21.

His Treasurer, Rocky Gallasini, is the mother of one of the phony electors lettter signers, Anissa Galassini Ford Tinnin.

I’m truly super busy recruiting in hopes of a full Democratic candidate ticket.
I’ll run and keep you updated.

Watch: Cowboys For Trump Leader Calls For New Rally With "Blood Running From The Building"

Source: Albuquerque News

In a series of remarkable videos posted on social media after an armed incursion by pro-Trump domestic terrorists into the US Capitol Building left four people dead, Otero County Commissioner and Cowboys For Trump founder Couy Griffin shows that he was there and warns that, “this is what you are going to get. You are going to get more of it.”

“There will be blood flowing from that building,” Griffin says in a second video posted this morning. In it he calls for a second rally on Inauguration Day to “plant our flag” on the desks of Speaker Pelosi, new Senate Majority Leader Schumer and even President Trump, “if we have to....

Then the video gets scary. Griffin postures that “we could have a Second Amendment rally on those same steps that we had that rally yesterday. And if we do, it’s going to be a sad day because there’s going to be blood running out of that building. But mark my word, by the end of the day we will plant our flag on the desk of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer… and Donald J. Trump if it comes down to it.”

Later in the video he returns to the idea of a second rally and suggests it occur on January 20th, Biden’s Inauguration Day.

This is 'my' county commissioner. If you ever feel like adding your voice to his nonsense, go to Facebook's Cowboys for Trump.
I was asked by a local to let friends know they can donate to a recall effort. I don't know about other states, but BEFORE we can get a petition going, we have to go before a judge...and we're trying to get an attorney to help us.

DUer duhneece campaign update

Better late than never…but better never late…well, I’m late. Sorry.

Update: One of the Democratic candidates in my combined campaign won; he was announced winner just last night after a recount, winning by a 36 vote margin. 36 votes.


The rest of us lost out races but won 30-34% of the vote in our very red county. The fact we had a full Democratic ticket is a win. And we’ll do it again. Of the 3 candidates I recruited, two said they would definitely run again in 2022 for whichever offices we need candidates for. There are no state senate races in two years, so I’m committing to you here on DU that I’ll run again.

One big difference will be that we can canvass again in 2022! We Democrats did little canvassing across the nation because of Covid. I will begin canvassing before filing date in March 2022. I make that commitment to DU, too.

I couldn’t have done it without Omaha Steve and all of the DUers who cheered me on, supported my campaign financially and gave me great advice. I am indebted to you all. Many of you urged me to run again and committed to supporting me however you could. You make it possible to imagine a better world.

Thank you. Those two words feel so tepid, so weak for the immense gratitude I feel. DU is the best.

DUer running for office needs DU support, please

When I became aware that more votes are given to our Presidential (or Governor, depending on the election cycle), Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen, and all state candidates if we run for office locally, I chose to refocus my anger, fear, and disgust at Republicans and T. Speaking back to my fear at making myself a target of a very red county, I ran for New Mexico State Representative against an ALEC ‘Star Legislator’ 4 years ago. Two years ago I had two minor brain surgeries to treat successfully my Trigeminal Neuralgia so I didn’t run.

When I ‘saw’ Omaha Steve, the first DUer I knew to actually step up, step out and run for office, I felt hope…and I have needed hope since I joined DU in 2003, Iraq War through Trump. Otherwise, I have had those moments when I was curled up in a fetal position, so overwhelmed with how awful our world, our nation has been.

I spent the past few years recruiting other Democrats to run locally and this is the first year in over 20 years, we have a full ticket. This year with our own mini-Trump County Commissioner founding Cowboys for Trump, gaining ‘fame’ being on Fox and meeting with Trump. He’s the man retweeted by Trump who said, “The only good democrat is a dead democrat” ….now his racism was revealed when he said, “…urged people who support performances of the Black national anthem at football games to "go back to Africa." https://www.elpasotimes.com/story/news/local/new-mexico/2020/07/28/cowboys-trump-founder-couy-griffin-defends-go-back-africa-comments/5525905002/

I told everyone, including Planned Parenthood, educators’ unions, labor unions, Sierra Club that I was running a combined campaign for ALL Democratic candidates, up and down ballot, but especially for our Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small Xochitl is tied in polls with the same ALEC star who was my opponent in current polls. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/exclusive-poll-shows-yvette-herrell-and-xochitl-torres-small-tied-in-swing-new-mexico-house-district-rematch

Xochitl is also listed as the NUMBER ONE most competitive Congressional races, “…1. New Mexico 2nd (Democratic-held, previous ranking 5): Rep. Xochitl Torres Small is Democrats’ most vulnerable member of Congress right now because she’s representing a conservative, mostly rural district that voted for Trump by 10 points. And she’ll face a rematch against former Republican state representative Yvette Herrell, who lost by just 3,722 votes in 2018. But like all the Democrats on this list, Torres Small is doing what she needs to do to have a chance to hang on.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/07/17/fix-house-rankings/ This is who I’m working hard to elect...not just me.

I’m doing all I can to elect our next President, Senator and Congresswoman…as well as NM State Senator (me!), State Representatives, County Commissioner, Clerk and Treasurer. Please help me with a donation. I can’t hold my typical fundraising events (because of Covid) and, more than ever, I am relying on old friends and DU.
