New Report Shows Why Trump Could Win New Mexico in 2020

Back in September, I wrote about Donald Trump’s plan to win the state of New Mexico — something no Republican presidential candidate has done since 2004. The president’s strategy focuses on Democrats’ opposition to oil and gas development, which is the driving force of New Mexico’s economy. A new report out from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Energy Institute (GEI) shows why this strategy has merit.

Russian Collusion? 2020 Democrats Share Putin’s Goal to End U.S. Fracking

And also as per usual, the media is completely missing the bigger picture — Trump knows that Republicans face a significant disadvantage during typical elections in New Mexico, but 2020 is no typical election for the states’ residents.

Can America Achieve Energy Independence? Only If We Don’t Overregulate…

This article is part of a series focusing on Lens of Liberty, a project of the Vernon K. Krieble Foundation In her Liberty Minute titled “Change the Rules,” Helen Krieble examines a way that regulations have held back American energy independence: I worry about being dependent on foreign countries for our energy. New discoveries of oil and natural gas in the U.S. and new technologies for producing it responsibly have made that possible, yet our own government has made it almost impossible to produce our own energy through burdensome and expensive regulations. If we look through the lens of liberty
