New Ad: Stephanie DuBois for PRC in District 2

Stephanie DuBois, the Democratic candidate for the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission in District 2, will be airing the ad above on cable TV stations. DuBois, the only candidate in her race to be publicly funded --- meaning she is not taking any campaign donations from special interests -- is running an energetic grassroots campaign. Stephanie has been traveling her vast district for months, attending events and reaching out to voters as the citizens' candidate for the PRC. As Stephanie says in her ad, she wants to put the public back in public regulation.

Her Republican opponent, Patrick Lyons, is finishing the second of two terms as New Mexico Land Commissioner. His eight years in office have often been scandal ridden, including widespread outcries against his the secretive White Peak land swap (more here). The deal was halted after Attorney General Gary King successfully petitioned the New Mexico Supreme Court for a stay. The Court has yet to render a final decision on the matter. 

Lyons' dealings in the land office are also the subject of an extensive special audit being performed by State Auditor Hector Balderas’s office. Investigators are reviewing the legality of about 100 land deals.
