Gov. Palin endorses Steve Pearce in NM-02

On Facebook Wednesday, Sarah Palin endorsed Steve Pearce for the U.S. House of Representatives in NM-02:
Steve Pearce for New Mexico

With less than four weeks until Election Day, the momentum is clearly on our side. We must keep it going! Today, I’m happy to endorse another principled conservative running for Congress.

Steve Pearce, in New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District, understands what makes this country great. As a decorated military veteran, Steve served our country with honor and distinction. As a successful business-owner, he has created real jobs for New Mexico. By sending Steve back to Congress, we add one more strong voice for fiscal discipline, energy independence, and getting Americans back to work.

Please visit Steve Pearce’s website at and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
Pearce is actually running for a seat he once held. He represented New Mexico's 2nd CD from 2003 to 2009 and had risen to the leadership position of Assistant Minority Whip in the House. He left that body to run for the U.S. Senate and won the GOP primary, but he lost in the general election to Tom Udall. Then Pearce announced his candidacy for his old seat and easily won the Republican primary.

Pearce is matched against incumbent Democrat Harry Teague in the 2010 general election. The 2nd Congressional District encompasses the entire southern half of New Mexico, including the cities of Las Cruces and Roswell. Both Pearce and Teague are from Hobbs in Lea County.
