(UnitedVoice.com) – People living in California, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania have grown accustomed to outrageous comments and confusing orders by their governors. Now, one more state can be added to the list.
Yesterday, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) said during the COVID-19 pandemic, people were free to protest all they wanted, peacefully. Just don’t run for office and expect to campaign door-to-door without safely social distancing and wearing a mask.

Grisham said that candidates couldn’t go door-to-door because it’s a “terrible idea in a COVID world.” On Sunday, protests broke out in Albuquerque over the presence of 35 federal law enforcement officers assisting state and local officials in fighting crime. Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci was forced to testify under duress that protests helped spread the highly-contagious virus.
Previously, the governor discouraged protests or any activity that would include mass gatherings. Perhaps the governor’s stunning reversal has less to do with policy and more to do with potentially being Joe Biden’s running mate for vice president on the Democratic ticket?
The former vice president recently said he’d be announcing his choice in the first week of August.
