The awareness of a sense of duty and of service to my family and my country has always been a part of my life. That is the reason I am not a follower nor do I seek glory. Although others see me as a quiet person, I have never allowed anyone to intimidate me or my family.
The first time I took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States was just after my graduation from Grants High School. I had married my high school sweetheart, Francesca, and we embarked on the adventure of military service in the U.S. Air Force. It was a great start to life, and a fantastic experience which took us to Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan and then to Cannon AFB, in Clovis, NM.
After the Air Force, two years in the National Guard found me still following a life of service. The next point of direction led me to join the Taos County Sheriff’s Office, where I took another oath to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution. Then an advancement in my career gave me opportunity to join the Las Vegas, Nevada, Metropolitan Police Department, where I was again serving under an oath to protect this same Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. My whole life had this one focus, and this same calling of service.
When I retired at age 50, we returned home to Vadito, New Mexico. I was living the life of retirement when the call to serve was presented to me again and I was asked to run for Congress in the 3rd Congressional District. When I considered that God may have other plans for me, I said yes.
As I watch my grandchildren growing up, I know that I need to do whatever I can to serve this nation for them and their future. The road that Progressives have begun to take will lead us away from the protections and the safeguards that God built into our Constitution by leaders who feared and respected Him. They knew what could happen, and so built a sure foundation for us. When elected to office, I will again take the oath and the action to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States of America, so help me God.

Third Congressional District Candidate Conversation
New Mexico In Focus, a Production of KNME-TV
Today the Republican Party of New Mexico held their convention nominating candidates to the Primary Election Ballot for the election this June. The results were clear with Michael Romero producing a commanding response of support from the delegates in the 3rd Congressional District. Mr. Romero obtained 129 totaling 60% of the delegates. His opponents only manage to get 62 votes totaling 29% and 23 votes totaling 11% respectively.
This was a huge win for the Romero campaign. Upon the announcement of the results of the Republican Convention, Michael had this to say: “I want to thank each delegate who took the time and effort to come into Albuquerque today. My opponents are to be respected for showing. I know they both worked very hard. I wanted to thank my family and my campaign staff for the long hours of hard work and dedication to making the 3rd Congressional District a competitive district. These results and the record number of attendees from the district prove Ben Ray Lujan better know the families of Northern and Eastern New Mexico are sending a message: Pobrecito. He’s going to lose.”
The results mean that that the last place candidate in the 3rd Congressional District must go out and gather more petition signatures. The question remains as to whether or not he will even make the ballot. He has 30 days to turn in new signatures to the Secretary of State.
