Rio Grande FRW Monthly Meeting

Meet Yvette Herrell, Republican Candidate for US House of Representatives

Well we are getting down to the last few weeks of this Election Campaign, and now is not the time to back off.  We all watched the polls for the Presidential Election two years ago and low and behold, look what happened.

 

Our special speaker for this meeting is Yvette Herrell, who is running for New Mexico 2nd US Congressional District.  Please turn out to give her your support and encouragement as she enters into these last crucial weeks of the campaign.  Invite a friend, family member or neighbor.  I've heard her speak several times and she is very dynamic.

 

Also, find out what YOU can do in these final weeks.  There are opportunities to walk neighborhoods, make phone calls and man our Valencia County Republican Party Office in Rio Communities.   

 

This is getting serious and it's all hands on deck....... Hope to see you next Tuesday.
