Senator Greg Baca Announces He Will Not Seek Reelection to the Senate

BELEN—Today, Senate Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca (R-Belen), announced he will not be seeking reelection to the State Senate in District 29.

Senator Baca issued the following statement:

“After much deliberation and prayer, and conversations with my family, I am announcing today that I will not be running for reelection to the State Senate. It is clear to me that the greatest good I can do for the people of my community and the State of New Mexico does not lie in seeking another term in the legislature.”

“Though this announcement may come as a shock to some, careful observers of the progressive plan to pit two Hispanic Republicans against each other through redistricting may have seen this coming. In short, I refuse to allow the radical left to pit brother against brother.”

“Although I am proud of what we have accomplished, my work is not done. Our state has a bright future ahead and our momentum in the State Senate is evidence of that. A new day for New Mexico is coming, and as leader of the Senate Republican Caucus, a small business owner, and husband and father, I will do everything I can to see that day become a reality.” 

“To the voters of District 29, thank you for your confidence and support. To my Republican colleagues in the Senate, thank you for the honor of serving as your leader. This has been the opportunity and privilege of a lifetime that I will never forget.”
